XI.- Irish Teachers' Jouknal : ''There can he no second 
opinion as to the research, industry, and ability displayed in the 
work. " 

XII. — (Liverpool) Usited Irishman": "Our generation has wit- 
nessed a great disentombment o£ the almost forgotten chronicles of 
our race, and amongst the many works of the various scholars and 
antiquaries who have laboured in this direction, Mr. O'Hart's book 
is one of the most valuable." 

XIII.— Gal WAY Vindicator ; ''By unveiling the Irish Genea- 
logies, Mr. O'Hart has rendered good service to his country." 

XIV. — "WATERrOKD News : " The author deserves the lasting 
gratitude of the Irish Nation, for publishing, at so much expense, 
such a work." 

XV. — RoscoMiiON Messenger : " With the exception of the 
Jews, there was, we believe, no other race on earth who trace their 
lineage to so remote an antiquity as can the descendants of Heber, 
Ir, and Heremon. Thanks to Mr. O'Hart, they have now » new 
start in the pages of history, and will come down to posterity as 
fresh as those who have succeeded them by a thousand years." 

XVI.— Irish Educational Journal : "The learned author ex- 
hibits in every page a knowledge of his subject not always to be met 
with in treatises on Genealogy." 

XVII.— Ballina Herald : "The ' Pedigrees' display an astonish- 
ing amount of research, and are concisely put and admirably ai'rangcd 
by the author." 


XVIII.— Irish Times : " Mr. O'Hart claims for his book no more 
than that it is a carefully and honestly -made compilation from the 
works of the highest authority. The author proves incontestably 
that Queen Victoeia is of Insli lineal descent, and gives the ' Stem 
of the Royal FamUy' at considerable length, tracing Her Majesty's 
pedigree back to the father of the human race ... As a book 
of reference Mr. O'Hart'swork will be found very useful to the Irish- 
man imbued with proper affection for the history of his race." 

XIX. — Kilkenny Journal : " This work is one of surpassing in- 
terest, not only to Irishmen, but to all students of Celtic History. 
The learned author has left nothing undone to render his work 

XX. — Wexford People : "Mr. O'Hart's book is an admirable 
production. It would seem to us to be not only the resxilt of a 
labour of love, but of the labour of a whole lifetime combined there- 
with. The intimate knowledge beginning with family history, and 
developing into national history, which it displays, is truly wonder- 

XXI.— IsToRTHEKN Whig : " The author actually traces the Genea- 
logy of the Irish race from the creation of man— from Adam down to 
the present day." 

XXIL— Liverpool Meecukv; "The volume is the result of a 
considerable amount of careful research, which has enabled the 
compiler to bring to light many hidden and curious historical 

XXIII.— Clare Advertiser : " W« have now before us one of 
the most valuable and interesting Irish works perhaps ever pub- 
lished . . . There is a pleasing simplification of abstruse terms 
which is calculated to enhance its value manifold beyond the general 
range of historical Irish works . . . The root and stem and wide - 


extending branclies of the Irish nation arc given withgi-eat suociuct- 
nes? and olearnesa, from Adam and from Noah down to the 17th 
century. But perhaps one of the strangest items in this most 
valuable repertoire of Irish antiquity, is that showing how her 
Majesty, the Queen, derives her lineal descent from a branch of the 
author's family . . No matter what page the book is opened at 

— from the Preface to the Appendix, the reader is sure to find some- 
thing interesting, atti-active, and novel. The typography is faultless, 
the binding and gilding chaste, grand, firm, and substantial. . . . 
It is a volume which deserves to get wide circulation.'' 

XXIV. — Limerick Chronicle : '• The author has shown an un- 
flagging, and, indeed, a laudable zeal, in disinterring from half 
mouldered manuscripts an amount of information relative to the 
antecedents of the old Irish families . . . Mr. O'Hart's industry ia 
most commendable. His work certainly leaves nothing to be desired. 
We would commend to the interest of our readers an admirable 
Appendix, which contains a great deal of information relative to the 
genei-al antiquities of the country, and adds considerably to the worth 
of the volume." 

XXV. — Ban'bridge Chronicle: "Altogether, Mr. O'Hart's 
volume is a notable example of research and learning on this parti- 
cular subject . . We may express a hope that his diligence 
will be requited by that full measure of success which it thoroughly 

XXVI. — M ULSTER !News: "One of the most interesting and 
reliable works ou Irish Pedigrees which has appeared this century." 

XXVII.— (The EngUsh) Catholic Times: "A book that wiU 
delight countless thousands of Irishmen all over the world. " 

XXVIII.— Limerick Eepokter : "A book which is likely to be 
referred to henceforward as the standard authority on the very in- 
teresting subject ou which it so exhaustively aud satisfactorily treats. 


It supplies a long-felt want in Irish antiquarian literature, in which 
nothing exactly like it exists . . . Mr. O'Hart's book, to describe 
it in a few words, is the sum and substance, the_;?os ct medulla, the 
concentrated essence of all the best works on the subject of 

XXIX. — Belfast News Letter : • ' We cordially commend Mr. 
0' Hart's book, and congratulate him on the compilation of a work of 
such laborious investigation. " 

XXX. — (The London) Daily Telegraph : " Appears to be cave- 
fully and intelligently compiled." 

XXXI. — Natiox ■ '• An interesting and valuable compilation." 

XXXII. — Dublin Freeman's Journal: "It has our warmest 
commendation, and deserves an extensive circulation." 

XXXIII. — Forney's Sunday Chronicle (Washington) : " It has 
long been conceded that the chrooicles of Ireland reached back into 
a past much more remote than those of any other State of Western 

XXXIV. — Weekly Public Opinion (Treston, N.J., America): 
" The bearing of the Celtic language and literature upon modern 
civilization, and its influence in moulding the character of the people 
who inhabit the British Isles and the United States, is not only 
little understood here (in America), it is scarcely dreamed of ; and 
yet the cursory reading of this erudite but popular work acquaints 
us at once with facts of the most profound interest and importance. 
In the development of the personal history of the Irish people, we 
are carried back to the origin and stem of the Irish nation, and find 
in it a past as remote and well-authenticated as that of the 


XXXV.— Clare Joukxal : " Will serve as a useful adjuuot to the 
study of the ancient history of our country, combined with a 
knowledge of families at present in existence, who are of purely 
Irish lineage and descent, as well as those who from time to time in 
the natural order of things settled in Ireland, and who cannot lay 
claim to Milesian Wood. Every one anxious to trace the origin of 
his name and the family from which he sprung should procure a 
copy of this work ; as, from its excellent arrangement, with a little 
study, he will be able to trace such. " 

XXX V'l.— Dumfries Standard ; '• What a lot of venerable tomes 
and other archaeological treasures the author must have levied tribute 
upon to realize such a product of labour and research as the work 
now before us ! Many years must have been spent by him in gather- 
ing materials, and in properly assorting the same, so as to make it 
the finished article such as we see it — a learned, yet popular delinea- 
tion of the Irish race as seen through the mists of tradition away 
far back to the remotest times, and through the more reliable medium 
of the historical era." 

XXXVII. — Dublin Medical Pees.s : " Mr. O'Hart's genealogical 
deductions are by no means mere speculations, but rather the records 
of facts, of which there exists good evidence." 

XXXVIII. — Boston Pilot : "Mr. O'Hart has collected, systema- 
tized, and digested the erudite disjecta memhra which lay scattered 
over many a volume. In this we repeat he deserves the applause 
and patronage of his Celtic readers on both sides of the Atlantic . 
He realized the situation with the fervour of a Celt, and the ken of a 
sennachie : between the covers of his book will be found more 
information on Irish family names than ever was accessible to the 
ordinary English reader before," 


XXXIX.— Inverness Highlander : " Until we recover our own 
lost MSS., there is no doubt we shall have to depend, to a very large 
extent, upon tfie vast and valuable MS. materials stiU existing in 
Ireland, for a large portion of our history. This is made very ap- 
parent by Mr. Skene in his " Celtic Scotland" ; and by Dr. 
Maclauchlan in his various works. The same fact is indirectly sup- 
ported by a great deal in Campbell's " West Highland Tales", as 
well as in the Lcabhar na-Feinne. . . Literature, however, is 
doing again what proximity and consanguinity did long ago, in putting 
ourselves and the Irish on good terms. There are now few literary 
men of any weight who indulge in the rabid hatred of everything 
Irish, which still characterizes the uneducated and the selfish. 

XL. — Cork Examiner : " This admirable book of pedigrees brings 
to light the origin of many families hitherto hidden in obscurity. 
Irish names have for centuries been so distorted that without such 
a book as Mr. O'Hart's it would be quite impossible to get at the 
roots of Irish family trees. When Irishmen with fine old Irish sur- 
names go to live in England, they generally become ashamed (Heaven 
knows why ! ) of their Celtic origin, and by twisting their surnames 
try to make people believe that they " came over with the Con- 
querors", or some other personage of doubtful character . . In 
Mr. O'Hart's book there is a large amount of information, such as 
will be interesting to every Irishman." 

XLI.— Irish American : ",Mr. O'Hart has undertaken a work that 
is really national in its scope ; and he should receive cordial aid from 
all who take pride in deriving their origin from the old land. As one 
of the oldest peoples, with a historical record, in the civilized world, 
our family pedigrees constitute an heirloom of inestimable value ; 
and we cannot afford to be indifferent to anything that tends to 
establish and strengthen the evidence of their authenticity. Mr. 
O'Hart has done much to rescue from oblivion the records of so 
many families of our old race,— aU traces of whom were being lost 
in the vicissitudes to which all who remained faithful to " Faith and 
Fatherland" were exposed in Ireland."

Im the first series of this Work, published in 1876, I pro- 
mised that, if God spared me, I would, so far as I could, 
complete Ibish Pedigkees ; this book is that promised 

As my first series''' had withstood the strictest scrutiny, 
I asked the permission of Sir J. Bernard Burke, Ulster 
King of Arms — himself a distinguished Genealogist, 
to compare my Notes with O'FerraU's Linea Antiqua : to 
see if the genealogies which I had traced for my second 
series would agree with those recorded in the copy of that 
excellent work preserved in the GfQce of Arms. With that 
flowing courtesy for which he has ever been proverbial. 
Sir Bernard not only granted me that permission, but also 
the permission to inspect Sir William Betham's enlarged 
edition of the Linca Antiqua, and any ancient record in 
the Office of Arms bearing on my subject. For that kind- 
ness and courtesy I desire to record my grateful acknow- 
ledgments. I think it right to observe that, in my care- 
ful inspection of those valuable records, I found that the 
genealogies which I had traced agreed more fully with 
those recorded in the splendid volumes of the " Betham 
Collection", than with those in O'FerraU's Linea Antiqua. 

* Series : Where reference is made in this book to " first series", it 
means the first volume or series of this Work; and it may be well to 
mention that the word in [bracket], in this or the first series, is meant 
to simplify the pronunciation of the word which precedes it. 


I have also studied with great advantage Burke's " Peerage 
and Baronetage", and his "Landed Gentry", which are 
full of valuable genealogical information. The knowledge 
which I thus gleaned, together with the varied informa- 
tion I obtained from the "Annals of the Four Masters", 
Funeral Entries, Inquisitions, and other pubhc records, 
as well as from private authentic sources — all enabled me 
to " complete" this series, such as it is ; and to continue 
some of the Genealogies down to the j)resent time. Or, 
to use the language towards me of the friendly reviewer in 
the "Boston Pilot" (see ante), I have " collected, systema- 
tized, and digested the disjecta membra which lay scattered 
over many a volume." 

Already I have collected in this Work three hundred 
and twenty-seven Genealogies, namely : fifty-one of the 
House of Heber ; six of the House of Ith ; twenty- eight of 
the House of Ir ; two hundred and eight of the House of 
Heremon; and thirty-four of Anglo-Norman families. But 
almost every one of those Genealogies is a stem from 
which branch many other families whose pedigrees I have 
not yet traced ; but, if I am spared, I hope to throw 
more light on the subject, in a future edition. 

Of the reviews of the first series which have reached 
me, not one was adverse ; although it was thought that, 
because "Irish Pedigrees" must necessarily bring to light 
a portion, at least, of Ireland's past sad history, some of 
the English press would review it in a hostile spirit. This 
was not the case ; for, my Work, while unveiling the 
Irish Genealogies, subserves no sect or party. 

At all times the subject of Genealogies must command 
the respect and attention of both rich and poor ; on ac- 

count of the intimate bearing it has upon the individual, 
together with the tribes, people, nation, and family to 
which he belongs. So it was in the past ; and so it ever 
shall be. The ancient Romans were fond of having the 
statues of their illustrious ancestors in prominent places, 
so as to animate themselves to deeds of virtue and valour ; 
and also that the memory of them would shed lustre on 
their descendants. Even our blessed Saviour would con- 
descend to have his genealogy, according to the flesh, 
traced up and left on record : the Evangelist St. Matthew 
traces it back to Abraham ; the Evangelist St. Luke, back 
to our First Parents. And we are told by St. Jerome that, 
in his own day, the boys in the very streets of Jerusalem 
could name their ancestors up to Adam. 

The ancient Irish were not behind other nations in this 
respect ; for, according to O'Donovan, in the Miftccllanij of 
the Celtic Society (1849) — 

"Those of the lowest rank among a great tribe traced and retained 
the whole line of their descent with the same care which in other 
nations was peculiar to the rich and great ; for, it waa from his own 
genealogy each man of the tribe, poor as well as rich, held the 
charter of his civil state, his right of property in the cantred in 
which he was bom, the soil of which was occupied by one family or 
clan, and in which no one lawfully possessed any portion of the soil 
if he was not of the same race as the chief." 

Up to the end of the sixteenth century — or as long as 
the " Tanist Law"* remained in force in Ireland, collec- 
tions of authentic Irish pedigrees existed ; in one or other 
of which was carefully registered the birth of every mem- 
ber of a sept, as well of the poor as of the rich, and by 

* Tankt-Law : See " The Laws of Tanistry" in the Appendix of 
the first series of this Work. 


whicli was determined the portion of land to be allotted 
for the sustenance of each head of a family and of those 
dependent on him. All those local records have disap- 
peared : when, by the conquest of Ireland, they ceased to 
be useful for their own special purpose, they would natur- 
ally be neglected ; and, in all probability, have most of 
them perished. But, before they disappeared, they doubt- 
less formed the basis of the genealogical collections made 
by MacFirbis, O'Clery, Keating, and in O'Ferrall's Liiwa 

" A time came", writes the author of The Life and Letters of 
Florence MacCarthy Mor, "when it was of impoi-tance for the con- 
querors of Ireland to know something of the native families from 
whom they must expect irreconcileable hostility, or might hope foi- 
allegiance ; and out of this necessity arose a new value for all 
Genealogical records, present and past, which had not yet perished. 
The attention of English official personages in Ireland, towards the 
close of the sixteenth century, was, in a marked manner, directed 
towards the recovery of such documents ; and able statesmen like 
Sir George Carewe, then President of Munster ; Lord Burgley, and 
Sir Robert Ceoyll ; Irish supporters of the Government, like the 
Earl of Thomond ; official legal persons, as Kichard Hadsor ; and, as 
Dr. O'Donovan asserts, paid spies, employed by the lord deputies, 
greatly contributed to the preservation of Irish pedigrees, and, truth 
to say, greatly also to the inaccuracies and confusion in which so 
many collections abound. From wills and lawsuits — customary 
sources of genealogical evidence, httle information could be expected 
amongst a people who had no power of disposing of the portion of 
sept-lands which they held during life, and whose contentions when 
not settled by the sword, were pleaded .and decided orally by 
Brehons on hill-sides under the open heavens, and which were 
little likely to be placed on permanent record: hence the more 
diligence would be needed by spies or official persons for acquiring 
the information, past or present, desired by the English Govern- 

As mentioned in the Preface of the first series, it was 
my happiness, when searching for my own family pedi- 
gree, to meet with ancient Irish Manuscripts (some of 
which were long considered as lost), from which, in 1873, 
I compiled my " Last Princes of Tara"* ; and which 
form the basis of this work. In addition to the other 
authorities mentioned in that Preface which aided me in 
my research, I am since indebted to the Very Eev. Canon 
Ulick J. Bourke's " Aryan Origin of the Gaelic Eace and 
Language": Longmans, Green & Co., London; the 
Lectures on Ancient Irish History, by the eminent Irish 
Scholar, the Eev. David B. Mulcahy, Lisburn ; and the 
Eight Eev. Dr. O'Brien's Irish Dictionary : Paris, 1768. 

It may be asked — Why trace in this Work the genea- 
logy of the present Eoyal Family of Great Britain and 
Ireland ; since Queen Victoria's immediate ancestors were 
German Princes, in no way connected with Ii-eland. I 
would reply that, as Queen Victoria is of Irish lineal 
descent, I have traced in Irish Pedigrees Her Majesty's 
Lineage. And it is satisfactory to me to have to record 
that the Queen's Irish lineal descent, as I trace it down 
from Heremon, son of Milesius of Spain, is the same as 
that compiled by the Eev. A. B. Grimaldi, M.A. ; and 
published! within the last month or two in London ! 

Lest the Irish genealogies might remain in the obscurity 
in which I found them, I published the first series at 
my own expense ; but, unaided, I was not prepared to 

* Last Princes of Tara : In that book I first traced the Irish lineal 
descent of Queen Victoria ; and my own family genealogy. 

t Published : The Leaflet in which Queen Victoria's lineal descent 
is traced by the Eev. Mr. Grimaldi, M.A., is published in London, 
by W. H. Guest, 29, Paternoster Eow. 

incur the further pecuniary responsibility of publishing 
this volume. Accordingly, I appealed, to representatives 
of families whose genealogies are traced in the Work; 
soliciting subscriptions towards the printing expenses of 
the publication : in this series are inserted the names and 
addresses of those who, up to the date of going to press, 
responded to my appeal. Further subscriptions will be 
acknowledged in a future edition. 

In the " Dedication" pages of this series I venture to 
show that the Gaels were the first inhabitants of Great 
Britain ; that there is not that difference in race between 
Celt and Teuton which many have supposed ; and that 
the Gaelic was the primeval language of Man ! The ex- 
tracts from ancient Irish history given in the " Appendix" 
will, I hope, also prove instructive. 

The "Exile of Erin", wherever his lot is cast, or the 
descendant of such exile who loves the land of his fathers, 
may find in this Work not only the lineage of his family, 
but also perhaps the name of the territory once possessed 
by his ancestors in the " Old Country." 

In compiling the first series my object was simply to 
" unveil" the genealogies therein recorded; and to spell 
the names so that they might the more easily be pro- 
nounced by the reader unacquainted with the Irish lan- 
guage. In preparing the materials for this series, however, 
I saw the great help it would render to the Science of 
Comparative Philology, were I to give in its correct ortho- 
graphy each Irish proper name mentioned in the Work. 
With that view I revised, de novo, all my notes ; and 
errors excepted, have written the personal names and sir- 
names therein recorded as they were spelled in the Irish 


language. To the Philologist and Ethnologist the study of 
these Irish proper names will disclose a mine of anti- 
quarian wealth more precious, in my opinion, than any 
of the rich antiquities discovered in Assyria, Mycenre, or 
the Troad. 

In the first series it is shown that, in the eleventh cen- 
tury, " sirnames" (or siV«-names) were first adopted in 
Ireland ; until that time every Irish personal name was 
significant, and was sometimes rendered more so by the 
application of some surname or epithet. The English 
meaning of the Irish name, or epithet, from which each 
Irish sirname is derived, is, in almost every instance, here 
given ; and, in some cases, I trace the epithet or its cog- 
nate in others of the ancient languages, to show that the 
Gaelic Irish speech is connected in sisterhood with the 
most venerated languages in the world. 

The reader who looks through the "Index of Sir- 
names", in this and the first series, will find in the body 
of the work (where I give the derivation of the names), 
that many families are of Irish descent who have long 
been considered of foreign extraction : for, dispossessed in 
former times of their territories in Ireland, by more power- 
ful families than their own, or by the Danish, or English 
invasion, members of some Irish families settled in Great 
Britain, or on the continent ; and, from time to time after- 
wards, descendants of such persons, with their sirnames so 
twisted, translated, or disguised, as to appear of English 
or Anglo-Norman origin, came to Ireland in the ranks of 
its invaders — in the hope that, if they succeeded in its 
conquest, they would, as many of them did, receive from 
the Conquerors some of the Irish estates confiscated in 
those unhappy times in Ireland. 


It has Leen said that the Irish genealogies cannot be 
authentic ; because, it is alleged, that, so late as 1809, the 
Irish did — 

Plough their horses by the tail. 
And thresh their oats by fiery flail ; 

and that therefore they must have been then so ignorant 
that they were unable to preserve their genealogies. No 
doubt, compared with our present advanced civilization 
and improved agricultural machinery, those were primitive 
modes of ploughing and threshing ; but it does not follow 
that, even if, in 1809, the Irish " ]3loughed their horses by 
the tail", no genealogical records then existed in Ireland. 
De Vere, in his Antar and Zara (London : Henry S. 
King & Co. 1877), says : 

" On examining the material records still existing, we find abun- 
dant proofs of the antiquity of Irish civilization. The traces of the 
husbandman's labour remain on the summit of hills which have not 
been cultivated within the records of tradition ; and the implements 
with which he toiled have been found in the depth of forest or bog." 

It has been also stated that,- "the names, dates, and 
events recorded by the old Irish annalists from the earliest 
times down to the third century were mere fiction." A 
great admission, however, in the statement is — that there 
were old annalists who recorded the history of the Irish 
nation, before the third century. I admit that errors and 
inaccuracies existed in some of the ancient Irish annals, 
as well as in the annals of other countries ; for, we are 
told that the compilers of the " Psalter of Tara", in the 
reign of the Irish Monarch King Cormac Mac Art (who 
died, A.D. 266), were strictly enjoined by him to x'urge 


that celebrated work of all matter which could not be well 
authenticated. Of that Monarch the Annals of the Four 
Masters say : 

" It was this Cormac, son of Art, that collected the chroniclers of 
Ireland to Teamhair ('• Tara"), and ordered them to write the 
chronicles of Ireland in one book, which was named the Saltair 
Teamhrach (anglicised "The Psalter of Tara"). In that hook were 
entered the coeval exploits and synchronisms of the Kings of Ireland 
with the Kings and Emperors of the world ; and of the Kings of 
the provinces, with the Monarchs of Ireland. " 

The " Book of Ballymote", preserved in the Eoyal Irish 
Academy ; and the Leabhar Buidhe Leacan (or "The Yellow 
Book of Leacan"), in Trinity College, Dublin, say that a 
noble work was performed by Cormac Mac Art, at that 
time : namely, the compilation called Cormac's Saltair. 

In Keating's History of Ireland, by O'Mahony, it is 
said : 

"This Cormac (JIac Art) was, indeed, one of the wisest Monarchs 
that ever possessed Ireland. Of this fact let his Tegasg Sigh (or 
' Book of Precepts for Kings'), which was transcribed by his son, 
Carbri Lificar, bear testimony, as well as the many other praise- 
worthy institutes, named from him, that are still to be found in the 
books of the Brehon Laws." 

Copies of the Tecjasg Pugh are yet extant in the " Book 
of Leinster" and in the " Book of Ballymote" ; and trans- 
lated extracts from it are given in the first volume of the 
" Dublin Penny Journal", by Dr. O'Donovan. Of Cormac 
Mac Art,* the learned O'Flaherty also writes : 

* Cormac Mac Art : For a further account of King Cormac Mac 
Art see Notes under No. 82, pages 110, 111, 112, 113, first series ; and 
" Cormac's Palace at Tara", in the Appendix to this volume. It may 
be permitted the humble writer of these pages to say that (see No. 
82, page 136, first series,) he is the lineal descendant of that once 
illustrious Monarch. 


" His laws, enacted for the public good, were never abrogated 
while the Irish Monarchy lasted." 

In their wonderful compilation, known as the Annala 
Rioghachta Eireann (or the Annals of the Kingdom of 
Ireland), the "Four Masters" carefully purged of fable 
and fiction the other Manuscript materials (written since 
the " Psalter of Tara" was compiled) which, during sixteen 
years, they had collected for the purpose of compiling 
those " Annals." Besides: the brief plain style of re- 
cording individuals and events, employed in the Annals of 
Ireland compiled by the " Four Masters," is, in itself, a 
convincing proof of their authenticity ; for, if they were 
the inventions oi fiction, they would certainly display its 
deceptive embelhshments, but could never present the 
pleasing simplicity and consistent chronological order 
which distinguish them. And, as facts stated in the 
Annala Rioghachta Eireann have been amply corroborated 
by other Manuscripts contemporary with those facts ; and 
as the early Irish chronicles are remarkably confirmed 
by science, as regards ecUpses, astronomical calculations, 
etc., the works of the " Four Masters" have justly been 
accepted by the most cautious archfeologists as trustworthy 
and reliable. Hence have I adopted as trustworthy, the 
genealogies compiled by Michael O'Clery, who was the 
principal of the " Four Masters." 

Scholars who are best acquainted with them contend 
that the Annals of the Kingdom of Ireland, compiled by 
the "Four Masters", are more reliable than even those of 
Greece ; which have been accepted, because of the accident 
of the Greek language having been studied and encouraged 
by the Eomans, who led the mind of Europe so long 


before and after the Christian era. But, as the greatest 
nations have often been the most ruthless in their treatment 
of conquered races, so it was with the ancient Eomans to- 
wards the nations which they subdued ; therefore it was 
that, through conquest, most of the countries of Europe, 
including Britain and Gaul, were forced to receive the 
Roman civilization. But, with Pagan Eome Ireland had 
no dealings ; she was, says De Vere, " an Eastern nation 
in the West ; her civilization was not military, it was 
patriarchal — whose type was the family, and not the army; 
it was a civilization of Clans". Claudian, speaking of the 
battles of the Roman general Stilico with the Britons and 
Picts, and the Scots of Ireland, in the latter end of the 
fourth century, says — 

Totam cum Scotus lernem, 

Movit et infesto spumavit remige Tethys. 

Which may be translated as foUows : 

When the Scot moved all Ireland against ua, and the ocean foamed 
with his hostile oars. 

' ' Leagued with their countrymen in Scotland, and with 
the Picts", writes DeVere, " the ancient Irish had repea- 
tedly driven back the Romans behind their further wall, 
till they left the land defenceless." Therefore it was that 
Pagan Eome hated Ireland and its belongings. As the 
Eomans never conquered or attempted to invade Ireland, 
they had no interest to serve by studying the Irish lan- 
guage ; and, following in the footsteps of their masters, the 
Roman-conquered nations learned to frown not only on 
the language of Ireland, but, on Ireland's admirable 


Ignorant of its worth in the domain of a Classical edu- 
cation, some of the Irish people of to-day have, through 
fashion, unhappily learned to despise their native tongue 
— the Gaelic language of Ireland : 

Long, long neglected Gaelic tongue, 

Thou'st died upon our Irisli plains, 
Save some lingering sounds that stay, 

To tell us that a wreck remains. 
Our " hundred hills" each bears a name — 

An echo from each vale is wrung 
Upon our ears — these bring with shame 

Remembrance of our native tongue. 

As if, howevei, the Celtic were the language of Destiny, 
philology has come to its rescue. Of that science the 
Eev. Canon Bourke writes : 

" The Lectures of Max MuUer and Matthew Arnold, at Oxford ; 
of Geddes, at Aberdeen ; Blackie, at Edinburgh ; the published 
works of Prichard and Pictet ; of Cox and Nigra ; of Sir Henry 
Sumner Maine and of Mens. H. Gaidoz in the Revue Celtique ; the 
publication at home of O'Curry's MS. Materials of Irish History ; 
the Essays and learned works on philology by W. K, Sullivan, have 
given the science in this country a public status which it had never 
before the present time enjoyed. The German host of Gaelic lovers 
are found in the van of this wonderful movement." 

As showing that there is not that chasm between Celt 
and Teuton which ignorance, prejudice, and political dif- 
ferences in the past had placed between the two races in 
Great Britain and Ireland, Arnold says, in his Essays on 
■the study of Keltic Literature : 

" There exists in the mind of many Englishmen, yea, and of many 
Irishmen in Ireland, such a sense of mutual repulsion, such a feeling 


of incompatibility, of radical antagonism between the two races that 
the Jews seemed, at least not long ago, nearer than the Gael to 
Englishmen ... I remember when I was young I was taught 
to think of Kelt as separated by an impassable gulf fi-om Teuton ; 
my father in particular was never weary of contrasting them ; he in- 
sisted much oftener on the separation between us (the English) and 
them (the Irish), than on the separation between ua and any other 
race in the world . . . The sense of apathy to the Irish people, of 
radical estrangement from them, has visibly abated amongst all the 
better part of us. I am inclined to think that the march of science 
— science insisting that there is no such original chasm between us — 
has had an appreciable share in producing this changed state of 

The estrangement on the part of the Irish towards 
the EngUsh people was equally intense ; for, I well 
remember having in my boyhood asked my mother, why, 
as she understood the English language, she did not speak 
it. Her reply to me, interpreted, was : 

" My child, I hate the English for the cruelties they inflicted on 
our people, since first they came to Ireland ; my heart can therefore 
never warm to the language of the Sacsanach,"* 

Beyond what is revealed in the genealogies recorded in 
this Work, it is not my province to enter into the past sad 
history! of Ireland ; but the immortal Moore has mildly 

* Sacsanach : This word Sacsanach, gen. ,Sacsanaif/h [Saxony], is 
the Irish name for "a Saxon", and "an Englishman." 

iSad History: To their credit be it told, there are many benevolent 
Englishmen who candidly admit that, in the past, England inflicted on 
Ireland wrongs, for which honourable amends should now be made : 
among them, Mr. William Ewart Gladstone, M.P., late First Lord of 
the Treasury in the " Gladstone" Administration ; and Lord Kan- 
dolph Churchill, M.P., son of the amiable Duke of Marlborough, 
Her Majesty's Viceroy in Ireland, in 1877, under the " Beaconsfield" 
(or Disraeli) Administration. 


told it in the following lines, which he hopefully inscribed 
to the Hero of Waterloo, as a distinguished Irishman : 

While History's Muse the memorial was keeping 
Of all that the dark hand of Destiny weaves, 
Beside her the Genius of Erin stood weeping, 

For hen was the story that blotted the leaves ; 
But oh ! how the tear in her eyelids grew bright. 
When, after whole pages of sorrow and shame, 
She saw History write, 
With a pencil of light 
That illumin'd the volume, Wellington's name! 

Yet still the last crown of thy toils is remaining. 

The grandest, the purest, even tliou hast yet known; 
Though proud was thy task, other nations unchaining, 

Far prouder to heal the deep wounds of thy own. 
At the foot of that throne for whose weal thou hast stood. 
Go, plead for the land that first cradled thy fame — 
And, bright o'er the flood 
Of her tears and her blood, 
Let the rainbow of hope be her Wellington's name!

* Subscribers : As the first and second volumes which compose Irish 
Pedigrees were compiled solely with the view to rescue the Irish 
Genealogies from oblivion, and as the subscriptions as yet received 
towards the expenses of their publication do not cover the Author's 
pecuniary responsibihties in the matter, he appeals to the repre- 
sentatives of those families whose lineages or pedigrees he has 
traced and recorded ; in the hope that their amor generis wUl induce 
them to share with him in the publication liabilities ! Any sub- 
scriptions received by him for that purpose will be thankfully 
acknowledged in future editions of the work ; and communications 
are sure to reach him which may be addressed to him at " The

Ulster King of Aems, 



Addressing you in tlie first series of this Work, 
as the only person, in my opinion, competent to pro- 
nounce on the genealogies which I trace in Irish Pedi- 
grees, I there quote an important passage from page 728 
of Camden's Britannia, which says — 

' ' From the deepest sources of antiquity the history of the Irish is 
taken ; so that, in comparison to them, that of other nations is but 
noTelty and a beginning.'' 

If this be true of the "history" of the Irish Nation — 
and few, if any, will dispute Camden's dictum — it also 
follows that, compared with the Irish tongue, the language 
of any other nation is but " novelty and a beginning." 

Eminent geologists and ethnologists maintain that the 
locality of Man's primitive origin, the seat of the Garden 
of Eden — the so-called "Paradise" — was in the Pacific 


Ocean, south of the present contment of Asia, westward to 
Africa, and eastward to Australia. When the gi'eat Pacific 
continent* slowly sank, so that the ocean commenced 
filling up the valleys, Man retreated to the mountains ; 
which, by continued sinking, were transformed into islands, 
and now form the many groups of Polynesia. If this 
theory could be reconciled with the narrative in the 
Sacred Volume (see Genesis, ii. 10, 11, 12, 13, 14)— and 
Scripture Commentators confess that the sites of some 
countries, cities, and places mentioned in the Bible are 
even yet unascertained — it would explain the origin of the 
ancient temples and other buildings found in America after 
its discovery by Christopher Columbus, a.d. 1492 ; and 

' Continent : It is a well-koown fact that tlie whole Pacific coast 
(especially California) with all its mountains, is perpetually rising, 
and that at a comparatively rapid rate. The land containing on its 
bosom the great American lakes is slowly sinking ; while Southern 
Indiana, Kentucky, and the surrounding States are rising. Geolo- 
gical investigations prove that those great lakes, except Ontario, had 
formerly a southern outlet ; until, by gradual northern depressions 
and southern upheavals, a northern outlet was formed from Lake 
Erie into Lake Ontario, about forty thousand years ago ! This 
outlet — the Niagara river — is still wearing its channel. The divi- 
sion line of the watershed south of the lakes and the Mississippi 
Valley has since that time been steadily travelling southward ; and 
when Chicago recently turned the water of Lake Michigan through 
the Chicago river into the Mississippi Valley, the old state of affairs 
was artitieially re-established. New Jersey is sinking, with New 
York City and Long Island, at the estimated rate of about sixteen 
inches per century. The coast of Texas is ascending at a compara- 
tively very rapid rate — some observers stating that it is as much as 
thirty or forty inches in the last half century. Combining these 
observations with the results of the recent deep-sea soundings of 
the United States steamer "Tuscarora," in the Pacific Ocean, we 
find that the bed of that ocean is evidently a sunken continent ; 
abounding in volcanic mountains some twelve thousand feet high, 
many of them not reaching the surface of the ocean, and others, 
which do so, forming the numberless islands of the Pacific. The 
study of coral rocks proves that this sinking has continually been 
taking place during several centuries ; and observations of the coast 
reveals the fact that it has not ceased. 


proclaim the great civilization of the inhabitants of the 
Pacific continent before its submersion. It is not how- 
ever difficult to understand that, civilized as those people 
maj' then have been, the insular position of the races 
thus preserved should, in the absence of intercourse with 
other civilized nations, have, in the course of ages, con- 
duced to a savage condition — savage in some instances 
€ven at the present day ; nor is it difficult to see that their 
insular position should also have conduced to the preserva- 
tion of their language — whatever it may have been. 

Writing of the Pyramids of Egypt — " those stupendouij 
monuments of human labour and engineering skill," 
Canon Bourke says : 

" Egypt stands in her Pyramids a perennial landmark in the do- 
main of the world's history, connecting the period of the deluge with 
the present. Take away the records written by the pen of Moses, 
there still remain the PjTamids, raising their heads above all passing 
mists, and proclaiming the story of the knowledge and the skill, and 
the practical power of the immediate posterity of Noah and his 

The first inhabitants of Europe after the deluge were 
the Celts ; who were descended from Japhet. But the 
Celts and the Gaels were identical in origin ; for, according 
to Liddell (in his " History of Eome"), Celt is strictly the 
same as Gael, and the Greek Keltai and Gallatai and the 
Latin Galll are all one. Heretofore, however, the Celts 
and the Gaels were considered as two distinct nations : 
the Celts as descended from Gomer; the Gaels, from 
Magog — two of the sons of Japhet. 

According to O'Brien's " Irish Dictionary" (from which 
I have largely quoted in these pages), that portion of the 


posterity of Japhet which peopled the south and south- 
west parts of Europe, must, after the deluge, have first pro- 
ceeded from the centre of the dispersion of mankind 
(Genesis xi. 8,) towards the straits of the Thracian Bos- 
phorus and those of the Hellespont ; which they crossed by 
means of boats, whose construction was, doubtless, 
familiar to them from the traditional knowledge they had 
of the ark. Those tribes which passed over the Helles- 
pont first inhabited the south parts of Thrace*, as also 
Macedonia or ancient Greece ; and those which crossed the 
Thracian Bosphorus (now nailed the straits of Constanti- 
nople) must have been the first inhabitants both of the 
northern parts of Thrace and of lower and upper Mesia, 
and also of Dacia when some of them had crossed the 
Danube.! In xjrocess of time a portion of the tribes 
which first settled in the two Mesias and the northern 
parts of Thrace proceeded towards lUyricum and Pan- 
nonia ; from which regions, where they were separated 
into two different bodies, it is natural to conclude (from 
the situation of those localities) that they proceeded 
towards the west by two different courses : those of 
Pannonia going towards Noricum (now called Austria), 
Stiria, Carniola, and upper Bavaria — from which 

* Thrace : The ancient name of Adriauople, in Thrace, was, 
according to Ammianus, Uscudama ("uisge" : Irish, water, and 
" daimh", a house, more correctly " domh" ; Lat. "dom-us"), mean- 
ing " the watery residence" : showing an affinity in language be- 
tween the Thracians and the ancient Irish. 

t Danube ■ The name of the river " Danube" is, in the old Celtic, 
Danou {" dana" ■ Irish, hold ; " obha" or " obhuin," an old Irish 
word for river), and signifies " the bold impetuous river. " 

(See the Irish epithet G/tavWi, in Note under the " O'Mahony" 
pedigree, for the root of the Latin river Garunma and the French, 
Garonne : each of which literally means " the boisterous river." 


countries it would appear that all the -western parts of 
Germany were first peopled, as the east and north-east of 
that country were probably peopled fromDacia ; and those 
of Illyricum taking their course towards Istria, from which 
point of the Adriatic coast they poured down into the 
regions of Italy, whence, in after ages, some of them pro- 
ceeded to Gaul, speaking the very same language as that 
spoken by those of their nation whom they left in Italy, 
and who, by the ancient authors, were called Indigence or 
Aborifjines ; meaning that they were the original or pri- 
mitive people who first inhabited that land. Those 
people were the Siculi, the Ausones, the Umbri (and all 
their descendants of different names mentioned by Cluver 
in his Geogr., Liber 3. c. 33. p. 332). Some of the ancient 
authors rank the Aborigines with the Umbrians, whom 
Pliny (Lib. 3. c. 14) represents as the most ancient 
people of Italy : " Umbrorum gens Antiquissima ItalisB 
existimattir'' ; and Florus calls them " Antiquissimus 
Italias populus." But it is conceded that the Aborigines 
were a tribe of the first inhabitants of Italy, and conse- 
qviently of the same stock of people, of whom the first 
planters of Gaul were only a detachment ; as the Umbri 
are acknowledged by some of the ancient authors to have 
been of the same stock as the old Gauls. The Sabini, 
who, as well as the Umbri and the Aborigines, formed a 
portion of the people afterwards called Latins, were but a 
tribe of the Umbri, and consequently of the same stock as 
the primitive Gauls. That the primitive inhabitants of the 
above-mentioned regions had originally but one and the 
same language, Cluver (in his German. Antiq. c. 6, 7, 8,) 
produces clear vestiges in Gaul, Germany, Spain, Italy, 


and Illyricum ; he might have added Thrace, Macedonia, 
and Greece. 

" I am much inclined," saya Dr. O'Brien, " to believe that the near 
agreement which the ancient writers have remarked between the 
old Latin and Greek was, in greater measure, owing to this original 
identity of the European languages, than to whatever mixture 
might have been introduced into the Latin from the dialects of the 
Greek adventurers that came to Italy from time to time. Nor do I 
doubt but that the Gauls who repassed the Alps and settled in 
Upper Italy in the earliest times of the Romans, found the language 
of that country very nearly agreeing with their own : in the same 
manner and by the same reason that the people of Ireland and those 
of the Highlands of Scotland easily understand each other's dialects, 
though it be now near twelve hundred years siuce the Scots of 
Scotland parted from those of Ireland." 

That the Iberno-Celtic or GaeHc Irish language is the 
best preserved dialect of the old Celtic, and therefore the 
most useful for illustrating the antiquities of all the Celtic 
nations, was the opinion of the great Leibnitz, who (in 
his Collcctcm. Etymol., vol. i. p, 158) writes : 

" Postremo, ad perficiendam, vel certe valde promovendam 
litteraturam Celtican, diligentius LinguK Hibernicse studium ad- 
jungeudum censeo, ut Lhudius egregie facere caepit. Nam, uti 
alibi jam admonui, quemadmodum Angli fuere Colonia Saxouum, 
& Brittanni emissio veterum Celtarum, Gallorum, Cimbrorum; ita 
Hibemi sunt propago antiquiorum Britannije habitatorum, colonis 
Celticis, Cimbricisque nonnullis, ut sic dicam, mediis anteriorum. 
Itaque ut ex Anglicis lingute veterum Saxonum, & ex Cambricis 
veterum Gallorum ; ita ex Hibemicis vetustiorum adhuc Celtarum, 
Germanorumque, &c., ut generaliter dicam, acoolarum Oceani 
Britanniui Cismarinorum antiquitates iUustrautur. Et si ultra 
Hiberniam esset aliquae insula Celtici sermonis, ejus filo in multo 
adhuc antiquiora duceremur." 


And the learned Welshman,* Edward Lhuyd, mentioned 
by Leibnitz in the foregoing extract, acknowledges that 
the roots of the Latin are better and more abundantly pre- 
served in the Irish than in the Welsh, which is the only 
Celtic dialect that can pretend to vie with the Gaelic Irish, 
as regards purity or perfection. Addressing the Irish 
nation, Lhuyd says : 

" Your language is better situated for being preserved than any 
other language to this day spoken throughout Europe ;'' 

meaning, no doubt, that languages are best preserved in 
islands and in mountain-countries, as being the most diffi- 
cult of access for strangers, and especially because the 
Eoman arms never reached Ireland, which, up to the 
Danish invasion, received no colonies but from Celtic 
countries. But, addressing the Welsh, the candid Lhuyd 
gives the preference to the Irish, not only for purity 
and perfection, as well as for priority of establishment in 
the British Isles, but also for its utility in illustrating the 
remote antiquities of Great Britain ; he says : 

" It ia impossible to be a complete master of the ancient British, 
without a competent knowledge of the Irish language." 

And he fully establishes the fact that the Gaels t had 
been the primitive inhabitants of Great Britain, before 
the Cymri or ancient Britons (who were the ancestors of 

* Welshman : See Lhuyd's " Irish Vocabulary ;'' and his 
ArchcBoloijia Britannica, published in English by Dr. Nicholson, in 
his " Irish Library," 

■)" Gaels : Baxter, in his Glossario Antiques Brilannim, considers 
that the Brigantes (who were a part of the Gaelic colony which went 
from Spain to Ireland) were the first inhabitants of Britain ; and 
Lhuyd shows that the Brigantes were the first inhabitants of all 
that part of Great Britain which now comprehends England and 


the Welsh) arrived in that island ; and that the dialect of 
those Gaels was then the universal language of the whole 
British Isle.* 

The Island of Great Britain was called hy the Gaels 
Alban, Albain (" aill" : Irish, a rock or cliff, and " ban", 
lihite ; because of the chalky cliffs of Dover, as seen from 
the direction of Gaul), and, more lately, Albion (" alb-us" : 
Lat., iMte), signifying the wldte cliff ; and when the Gaels 
were driven by the Britons to the northern portion of the 
Island, that part only was called "Alba", " Alban", or 
" Albain", while the southern portion of the Island, now 
known as England, was called Britain or " Albion." 

According to Usher (in his Antiquit. Eccl. Brit., page 
378), "Albion" was the name under which Great Britain 
was known to the Greeks, not only in the time of Ptolemy, 
Marcianus Heracleota, Eustachius, etc., but also in the 
much more ancient time of Aristotle and of Theophrastus : 
a very natural name for it by a Gaul placed on the conti- 
nent at or near Calais, where the first and only knowledge 
he may have of the British Isle consists in the bare sight 
of the xiihite cliffs of Dover ; and this Gaul having crossed 
the channel and observed the situation and shape of the 
land above Dover, naturally calls it Ceantir\ (" ceanntir" : 
Irish, head land), which the Eomans latinized Cantium, now 

* Isle : When the Cymri (aee " Oimbrians and Britons", in Appen- 
dix), settled in Britain, they forced the Gaels to the northern part 
of the Island ; and the name Alban or Albain, which the Gaels had 
first given to it, followed them, so as to be appropriated to whatever 
tract they inhabited. Hence it is that the term Albanach is the 
Irish for a native of Alba or Scotland, or North Britain, even at the 
present day. 

t Ceantir : This word is compounded of the Irish ceann, " the 
head", and tir, " a land", "a country", " a nation" ; and this ceann 


" Kent." A numerous colony of the Gaels having after- 
wards crossed over from Gaul to Britain, which hy degrees 
they peopled from one end to the other, they gave names 
to all the remarkable objects of nature and art throughout 
the whole country — such as rivers, mountains, headlands, 
towns, etc, ; and, accordingly, we find these Gaelic names 
everywhere in England and Wales, from Dover to York, 
namely : from Ceantir (or " Kent") to the river Isc, now 
called the " Ouse", which passes through York ; and from 
the river Isca (which passes through the town of C'aer 
Leon-ar-Isc, in Monmouthshire,) to Longdion (or "Lon- 
don"), and its river Tamh-isc or Thamisis, now the 

In his Mona Antigua, Eoland observes that the remains 
of old habitations stUl to be seen on the tops of high places 
in Anglesea are called to this day Ceitir Quidelod, which 
he anglicises " the Irishmea's cottages",* but which 

makes clnn, in the genitive case. Hence tlie Anglo-Saxon word 
king ; because the " King" is the head of his people or subjects : the 
Irish C being equivalent to the English letter K ; and the final 
double n, to the English ny. — See O'Brien's Irish Dictionary, under 
the word " Cinn." 

* Cottages : The ancient Irish had four sorts of habitations, viz. — 
1. Caithir, " a city" (the Welsh ceitir) ; 2. Baile, " a town" (Latin, 
villa), called Bailie mor, if "a large town"; 3. Dun, "a strong or 
fortified habitation"; 4. Bruighean, "a palace", " royal residence", 
■"a grand house or building." Bruighean is like the Prain of the 
Welsh, which means "a king's court"; they also call it Priv-lys 
(" Primh-lios" : Irish, a chief fori), meaning " aprincipal residence." 
■The Irish word " Brug" or " Brog" is the root of Bruighean, here 
mentioned ; and is the same in meaning as the German, Gaulish, and 
Spanish Bruiga, Briga, and Broga. The Thracian Bria (ace. Brian) 
signified "a town" or "habitation"'; and the Irish Bruighean is 
pronounced " bruian", the same as the Thracian Brian — both words 
having the same signification. 

Strabo observes that the " Phryges" were formerly called Bryges, 
or, as the Greeks wrote it, Bruges (Irish, Brugeis), and were of the 
Thracian kind : " Phryges antiquitus Bryges 'Thracum genus" ; 
which goes to prove that the Phrygians, Thracians, and ancient Irish 
dwelt in houses and in cities, and were thus distinguished from the 


should more properly be rendered " tlie habitatioas of the 
Gaels" ; and he justly observes that those are vestiges of 
the first habitations that were made by the first planters 
of the island, because the valleys were then all covered 
with woods, which were the haunts of wolves and other 
wild beasts. Two other objects, whose names are plain 
Irish, are living evidences that the Gaels were the ancient 
inhabitants of Anglesea before the "Welsh. The landing- 
place of the ferry or passage from North Wales to Anglesea 
is, in Welsh, caMei Port-aeth-toy, which is a corruption of 
the Irish Port-ath-bhuidhe, meaning " the bank or landing 
place of the yellow ford" : the water of that arm of the sea 
being of a yellowish colour, It is also remarkable that 
Tin-dath-wy , the name of the territory adjacent to Port- 
aelh-wy, is pure Irish ; for tyn, in Welsh, signifies " a 
country or territory", as tain does in 'Irish : so that 
originally the name was Tain-ath-hhuidhe, meaning "the 
territory of the yellow ford." 

Even the name of the very capital of Britain, as used 
in the time of the Eomans (who added the termination 
' ' um' ' to it) was mere Irish ; for long is still the only 
word in common use in Irish to signify '^ a ship," as din or 
dion has been used to express " a place of safety or pro- 
tection" : so that Longdin or Longdion, which the Romans 
changed to Londinum (now " London"), literally means " a 
place of safety for ships." It is also worthy of remark that 
the name of the river on which London is built was plain 
Irish. Csesar calls it Isis, which is only latinizing the 
Irish word isr, (" water"), which was the Gaelic name of 
that river before the Eomans invaded Britain ; and whether 
the word Tarn was always prefixed to isc or isis, either as 


an epithet, or as, being the name of the river Taine, 
which joins its water, in either case, the Irish word Ta7nh, 
wliich signifies "still" (or quiet, gentle, smooth), was a 
natural epithet for the river Thavies, as well as being a very 
significant name for the river Tame, on account of the 
stillness of its water. 

According to the ancient Irish historians and to Nenius, 
the Briton, the Gaelic colony which came to Ireland from 
Spain, and brought a mixture of the old Spanish or 
Cantabrian into the Irish language, was called the " Mile- 
sian or Scotic Nation" ; they were also called Scots. That 
Milesian colony never inhabited Britain before their arrival 
in Ireland, but came directly by sea to this country ; 
whence, after a long process of time, they sent a colony to- 
the north-west coast of Great Britain, and, in the fifth 
century, another colony under the command of Fergus 
Mor Mac Earca, the founder of the Scottish Monarchy in 
North Britain, 

The Gaelic Irish bears a striking affinity not only to the 
old British in its different dialects, the Welsh and Armoric, 
besides the old Spanish or Cantabrian language preserved 
in Navarre and the Basque provinces, but also to the 
Greek, the Latin, the Hebrew, Phoenician, the Chaldee, 
the Syriac, the Arabic, etc. Instances of this affinity are 
given throughout this work. l)r. O'Brien shows that the 
lingua prisca of the aborigines of Italy (from which the 
Latin of the twelve tables and afterwards the Eoman lan- 
guage were derived) could be nothing else than a dialect of 
the primitive Celtic ; and I venture the opinion that, if 
Philologists investigate the matter, they will find that the 
Aborigines of America and of the Polynesian Islands 


speak dialects of the ancient Celtic ! (For further valu- 
able information on this subject see Dr. O'Brien's excellent 
" Irish Dictionary.") 

The Problem—" What was the Language of our First 
Parents", has long been a disputed question. 

Some say it was the Pelasgian, which was another name 
for the Japhetic ; and some say that the Japhetic was the 
Scythian, which was another name for the Celtic. 

In a Scottish GaeUc poem by Allister MacDonald, in 
praise of the Gaehc language, the following passage 
occurs : 

' ' Si labhar Adhamli a b-pairthas fan, 
S'ba snasmhar Gaelig a m-beul aluin Eablia" ; 

which may be thus interpreted : 

' ' The expressive Gaelic language was that which Adam spoke in 
Paradise, and which flowed from the lips of the fair Eve.'' 

Or, divested of its adjectives, the passage may be reduced 
to the following proposition : 

The GaeUc was the Lanyuage of Eden. 
Of the Gaelic speech the Very Eev. Canon Bourke writes : 

" In its plastic power and phonetic fecundity Irish Gaelic possesses 
like its primitive Aryan parent tongue, not only the virtual but the 
formal germinal developments of dialectic variety." 

And Canon Bourke also says — 

"The science of Comparative Pliilology has, without direct 
reference to revelation, enabled men of literary research to discover 
the most convincing proofs, to show that before the dispersion of the 
human family there existed ■» common language, admirable in its 
raciness, in its vigour, its harmony, and the perfection of its forms".* 

* Forms : In the same strain writes Adolphe Pictet, of Geneva, 
in his Les Orkjincs ]ndo- Haropeennes, ou. les Aryan Primitifs (Paris, 


That common primeval language of Man, which some 
call by the name Aryan, I prefer to call the Scythian. 

According to the "Four Masters", the Scythian language 
was the Celtic ; which, after Gaodhal [gael] who " refined 
and adorned it", was called GaodUlg or Gaelic. 

Phoeniusa Farsaidh (or Fenius Farsa : see No. 14, Part 
I., c. i, first series), son of Baatli, son of Magog, son of 
Japhet, was the inventor of " letters" ; he was also the 
grandfather of Gaodhal, a quo the Gaels. This Phoeniusa 
Farsaidh was king of Scythia, and was the ancestor of the 
Phoenicians : after him the Scythian language was called 
the " Phoenician." It is worthy of remark that Cadmus''' 
the Phoenician (who is mentioned by O'Flaherty in his 
Ogygia as brother of Phoeniusa Farsaidh) was, according 
to the ancient Irish annaUsts, contemporary with Joshua ; 
and it is a curious coincidence that the alphabet of the 
Gaels consisted oi sixteen letters — ^the very number of letters 
as in the Phoenician alphabet, and the very number 
brought by Cadmus to Greece, from Egypt,! where the 
Gaels were first located, and whence they made their first 
migration, namely — that to the Island of Creta (now called 
Candia), in the Mediterranean Sea. 

* Cadmus : This name may be derived from tte Irish Cadhmus 
[caw-mus], whicli means "pride" ; some persons, however, advance 
the opinion that there was no such person as " Cadmus." 

t Egypt : This circumstance regarding the G aelic alphabet is the 
more remarkable, as its whole natural and primitive stock of letters 
is but sixteen in number ; the same as that of the first Roman or 
Latin alphabet which, according to Tacitus (Anal. ii. ) and Pliny 
(Liber. 7. u. 56), Evander, the Arcadian, brought from Greece to the 
Aborigines of Italy, and which was the original Phoenician set of 
letters communicated by Cadmus to the Greeks. And yet our six- 
teen letters of the primitive Irish alphabet were suflBcient for all the 
essential purposes of language ; each preserving its own sound or 
power, without usurping that of any other letter. In the primitive 
Gaelic alphabet H and P were not included.— O'Brien's Irish 


The ancient alphabet of the Gaels contained sixteen 
letters ; the Phoenician, sixteen ; the modern Gaelic, 
eighteen ; the Burmese, nineteen ; the Italian, twenty ; the 
Indians of Bengal, twenty-one ; the Chaldee, Hebrew, 
Latin, Samaritan, and Syriae, twenty-two each ; French, 
twenty-three ; English, twenty-four, it has now twenty- 
six ; Greek, twenty-four ; Dutch and German, twenty-six ; 
Slavonic, and Spanish, each twenty-seven ; Arabic, twenty- 
eight ; Welsh, twenty-eight ; Persian, thirty-one ; Coptic, 
thirty-two ; Turkish, thirty-three ; Georgian, thirty-six ; 
Armenian, thirty-eight ; Russian, forty-one ; Muscovite, 
forty-three ; Sanscrit, and Japanese, fifty ; Ethiopic, and 
Tartarian, each two-hundred-and two ; the Chinese have, 
properly speaking, no alphabet, except we call their whole 
language by that name : their letters are words, or rather 
hieroglyphics, amounting to about eighty thousand. 

The letters of the Gaelic alphabet were named after 
shrubs and trees : the name of the letter in every instance, 
save that of the aspirate H, begins with the letter itself ; 
to preserve, as it were, its proper sound or power. 

The sixteen letters of the ancient Gaelic alphabet were 
arranged in the following order : BLFSNDTCMG 
E, and A U E I. The H and P have since been added ; 
so that the modern Gaelic alphabet consists of eighteen 
letters, aiTanged as follows : ABCDEFGHIL]\IN 
O P E S T U. 

Beginning with A, the names of the letters of the 
modern Gaelic alphabet are : Ailm, which means the fig 
or palm tree ; Belth, the birch tree ; Coll, the hazel tree ; 
Dair, the oak tree ; Eadha, the aspen tree ; Feant, an 
alder tree ; Oort, the ivy ; {H) Vath (the name of the 


aspirate h),th.e white thorn ; loga, the yew tree ; Lias, the 
wild ash ; Muin, the vine tree ; Nuin, the ash tree ; Oir, 
the broom tree ; Peith, the dwarf elder ; Rids, the bore 
tree ; 8m\, the willow tree ; leine, the furze or whin bush; 
Vr, the heath shrub. 

There is no K in the Gaelic alphabet, ancient or 
modern ; nor had the ancient Latins any character like 
that letter : they gave the sound of K to C, as in the word 
sacra (pronounced " sakra"), where the c has the sound 
of the English letter k. The latin name Gasar is now in 
English pronounced "Seasar" (where chas the sound of s) ; 
in German, however, it is pronounced " Kaiser" ; but in 
no case can C in Gaelic be sounded like S. Nor have the 
Greeks the letter C in their alphabet ; but K (the Greek 
letter " kappa") corresponds to the Gaelic and Latin C, 
which has or should have the sound of the English letter 

Baath, son of Magog, son of Japhet, was contemporary 
with Nimrod ; of whom, according to an ancient Irish 
poem, it is said : 

One was at first the language of mankind, 
Till taughty Nimrod, with presumption blind, 
Proud Babel built ; then, with confusion struck, 
Seventy- two different tongues the workmen spoke. 

That one language was the language of mankind down 
from Adam to the building of the Tower of Babel, when 
(Genesis xi. 1) " the whole earth was of one language and 
of one speech." 

Upon the division of the Earth by Noah amongst his 
sons, and by Japhet of his part thereof amongst his sons, 
Scythia came to Baath's lot. Thus in Scythia, in Central 


Asia, far from the scene of Babel, the Valley of Shinar— 
the Magh Senaar of the ancient Irish annalists, Baath and 
his people, we are told, took no part with those of Shem 
and Ham in the building of the Tower of Babel ; and that 
hence, the lasting -vitality of the Celtic language ! 

If Baath and his people took no part in the building of 
the Tower of Babel, it may be affirmed that they did not on 
that head incur the displeasure of the Lord ; and that, 
therefore, their language was not confused. But the lan- 
guage of Baath and his people was the Scythian : ergo, the 
Scythian language was not confused. If, then, the 
Scythian language was not confused ; and that one was 
the language of mankind, from Adam down to the building 
of the Tower of Babel, when " the whole earth was of one 
language and of one speech", it follows that the " Scy- 
thian" was that one language — was, in fact, the language 
of Eden. But it has been above shown that the Scythian 
language was the Celtic ; and that the Celtic was the 
Gaelic : therefore, " The Gaelic was the language of 

Some persons consider that, because the Hebrew* was 
the language of the Jews — the once chosen people of God, 
it therefore was the language of our First Parents ; but, 

* Hebmv : The Druidic Irish had Hebraic customs to a great ex- 
tent : for instance — the Druidic judges were of a priestly caste, and 
wore each a collar of gold. Buxtorf states that this collar was called 
lodhan Morain ; and that " lodhan Moraia" is Chaldee for Urim 
and Thummbn (see Exodus, xxviii. 30). I cannot say whether it 
was the Gaels who borrowed that Mosaic badge from the Israelites, 
or that it was the Israelites who borrowed it from the Gaels ; but 
lodhan Morain is also Gaelic, and is said to be so called after 
a celebrated Irish Brehon who lived in the first century (see 
" Brehon Families", in the Appendix). 

As showing the affinity between the Irish and the Hebrew lan- 
guages, it may be remarked that the Irish pronoun si signifies " he", 


if the ancient Gaelic alphabet had only sixteen letters, 
while the Hebrew has twenty-two, it appears to me that, 
of the two languages, the Gaelic is the more primitive — is 
in fact more ancient than any of the languages above enu- 
merated ! 

After the confusion of tongues at the Tower of Babel, 
Phoeniusa Farsaidh, king of Scythia, and the inventor of 
" letters", as above mentioned, employed learned men to 
go among the dispersed multitude to learn their several 
languages ; who, when those men returned well-skilled in 
what they went for, opened a " school" in the valley of 
Shinar, near the city of Jiothena ; where, with his younger 
son, Niul, he remained teaching for twenty years. On 
account of Niul's great reputation for learning, Pharaoh 
invited him into Egypt ; gave him the land of Campus- 
Gyrunt, near the Bed Sea, to inhabit ; and his daughter 
Scota in marriage. 

The ancient Irish historians tell us that the river "Nile" 
was so-called after this Niul ; and that Scota, his wife, 
was the daughter of Pharaoh, who (Exodus, ii., 5) rescued 
the infant Moses from drowning in the Nile : hence, it is 
said, the great interest which Niul and Scota took in the 
welfare and education of Moses ; the affection which 
Moses entertained for them and their son Gaodhal ; and 
the friendship which long afterwards existed between the 
Feine and the Israelites in the Land of Promise. Such 

^'him", and that the Hebrew pronoun se also means " he", "him" ; 
that the Irish pronoun so, which means "this" or " that", is like the 
Hebrew so, which has the same meaning ; and that the Irish pro- 
noun isi, always expressed to signify " a female", is analogous to 
the Hebrew isa, which means "a woman." — See Buxtorf's Hebrew 


was the intimacy between Moses and Niul that, we are 
told, Moses invited him to go on board one of Pharaoh's 
ships on the Eed Sea, to witness the miracle (Exodus, 
xiv., 16, 17, 18) to be performed by the Great I AM, the 
God of the Israelites, in their deliverance from Egyptian 
bondage ; but, on account of his being the son-in-law of 
Pharaoh, Niul, while sympathising with the Israelites in 
their great affliction, asked Moses to excuse him for decli- 
ning the invitation. Then Moses held Niul excused. 

The Egyptians were the most learned nation on the face 
of the earth ; and the Bible tells us that Moses was in- 
structed in all the learning of Egypt. It does not however 
appear that, before the time of Moses, the Egyptians had 
any knowledge oi alphabetical writing. If, then, it was the 
Celtic alphabet which Cadmus the PhoBnioian brought from 
Egypt into Greece, we may infer that the Celtic language 
and alphabet were at that time known in Egypt ; and that 
it was in the school conducted by Niul and his father in 
the Valley of Shinar, or from Niul and his colony in Egypt, 
that the Egyptians received their knowledge of "letters", 
and probably much of the knowledge for which ancient 
Egypt was so renowned. But, wherever the Feine (or 
Phoenicians) and the Egyptians themselves received their 
education, it was they who had the honour of instructing 
civihzing, and poHshing the Grecians, by the colonies they 
sent among them : the Phoenicians taught them naviga- 
tion, writing, and commerce ; the Egyptians, by the know- 
ledge of their laws and polity, gave them a taste for the 
arts and sciences, and initiated them into their mysteries. 

For three generations the descendants of the Feine, 
who, under the chieftaincy of Niul here mentioned, settled 


in Egypt, possessed and inhabited the territory near the 
Eed Sea which was granted to him and his people by 
Pharaoh. Because, however, of the sympathy which Niul 
and his colony had manifested for Moses and the Israel- 
ites in bondage, the Egyptians (see the first series) forced 
Sruth, son of Asruth, son of Gaodhal, son of the said Niul, 
to leave Egypt, himself and his colony ; when, after some 
traverses at sea, Sruth and the surviving portion of his 
people (who were known as Phcene or Feine as well as 
Gaels) reached the Island of Creta, where he died. We 
learn that some of Sruth's colony remained in Creta ; some 
of them migrated to Getulia, in the North of Africa, where 
Carthage* was afterwards built ; and some of them sailed 
towards the Land of Canaan, where, on the Island of Sor, 
off its coast, they founded the city of " Tyre" : this colony 
of the Gaels was called Tyrians. Grateful for the sym- 
pathy which their forefathers in Egypt had experienced 
from Niul and his people, the Israelites, after they had 
been some time settled in the Land of Promise, allotted 
to the Tyrians that tract of country on the north-west of 
Palestine, which had been inhabited by the Canaanites ; 
and that territory was, from the name " Phoene", called 
Fhcenice and, more lately, Phcenicia. 

* Cartharje : This name is derived through the Latin C'artha-go 
from the Phoen. and Chald. Kartha, " a TFalled city" ; which word 
" Kartha" seems to be derived by metathesis from the genitive ease 
cathrach, of the Irish cathair [oawhir], " a city." Compare cathair 
with the British kaer ; the Soyth. car; the ancient Sax. caerten; the 
Goth, gards ; the Cantabr. caria ; the Breton. Ker ; the Heb. 
Kariah or Kiriah and Karth ; the Syriac Kari-llta ; and the Gr. 
Karah. Md-Kartha (meaning " the King of the city") was the title 
of the Phcenioian Hercules — the reputed founder of Tyre ; and 
" Mel-Kartha" is evidently derived from the Irish or Celtic Maol 
Carthach, which means the hero or king of the city." — See Note, in 
this series, under the sirname " MacCarthy." 


As the PhcBne (or Feine) while in Egypt were familiar 
with the motives which actuated the Egyptians in huilding 
their Pillar- Towers along the Nile (similar to those in 
Babylon and other Eastern nations), it is considered that, 
from the same motives, the Fenian leaders who settled in 
Ireland in those early times, did there erect those mys- 
terious "Bound Towers", concerning the origin of which 
there have been so many conflicting opinions ; for, at that 
early period in the world's history, a colony of the Feine 
(who are reisresented as good navigators, a race of giants, 
and " great builders in stone"), discovered and settled in 

I have thus traced the great antiquity of the Irish 
language, the affinity in race between Celt and Teuton, the 
origin and migrations of the Gaels, and their early settlement 
in Great Britain ; to show that there is not that difference 
in race between the English and the Irish peoples, which 
some would incline to believe. 

Under the auspices of your revered name I now commit 
my Irish Pedigbees to the care and perusal of the chil- 
dren of the Gael. 

With great respect, I am, Sir, 

Your ever faithful servant,

" In the early ages," saya Dr. Joyce, "individuals received their 
names from epithets implying some personal peculiarities, such as 
colour of hair, complexion, size, figure, certain accidents of deformity, 
mental qualities — such as bravery, fierceness, etc. ; and we have 
only to look at the old forms of the names, to remove any doubt we 
may entertain of the truth of this assertion." — Irish Names of Places.

His son, John MacMahon of Autun, in France, was created " Count 
de Equilly" ; who, in order that his children and his posterity might 
have sufficient proof of " the proud fact that they were of Irish 
descent", applied on the 28th September, 1749, to the Irish Govern- 
ment (accompanying his application with necessary facts, etc , for 
the Officers of Ulster King of Arms), to have his genealogy, together 
with the records, etc., of his famQy duly authenticated, collected, 
and recorded, with aU necessary verification. All this was accord- 
ingly done, the various requisite signatures affixed thereto, and 
countersigned by the then Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. In these 
records, preserved in the Office of Arms, Dublin Castle, Count de 
Equilly is described as of ''the noble family, paternally, of 
'MacMahon', of Clondeas (in the county Clare), and, maternally, of 
the noble family of 'O'Sullivan Beara. '" This John MacMahon 
(Count de Equilly) was the grandfather of Marshal Patrick

Eepublic ; born a.d. 1808, and living in 1877.

the great castle of Croom or 
Crom, on the river Maigne, 
in the present county Lime- 
rick, and this was the tradi- 
tion in the county in 1686, 
when the Manuscript called 
Carbrias Xotitia was written ; 
but the editor of that manus- 
cript did not find that fact 
recorded in any contempor- 
aneous documents, for he 
says — " Cujus rei periculum 
veri ego ad me non recipio, 
penes famam veteremque 
traditionem esto fides." Ac- 
cording to the Dublin copy 
of the Annals of Innisfallen, 
Crom was killed in, or im- 
mediately before, the year 
1254, at Itiis-an-hheil (now 
" Pheale"), near Iniskean, 
to the west of Bandon, in the 
county Cork, by O'Mahony's 
people. This Crom was the 
ancestor of all the septs of the 
O'Donovan family in the 
baronies of Carbery, in the 
county Cork ; and of several 
others in Leinster. He gave 
name to Glean-na-Chroim., in 
the parish of Faulohus, which 
afterwards became the pro- 
perty of a branch of the 
MacCarthys, who had their 
principal seat at Dunman- 

115. Cathal : the eldest 
son of Crom. This Cathal 
gave name to the territory 
of " Clancahill", in the Co. 

Cork, which is defined by an 
Inquisition taken at Cork on 
the 6th of October, 1G07, as 
containing two manors, viz., 
" the manor of Castell 
O'Donyvane, containing 

twenty and one ploughlands; 
and the manor of Rahyne." 
The territory of Clancahill 
contained, in all, three score 
and seven ploughlands ; and 
extended " from the sea on 
the south, to the river Mya- 
lagh, and was bounded on 
the north with the lands of 
Clandonell roe, the lands of 
Glanscrime, and with the 
lands of Clandoghlin on the 
east, and the lands of Clan- 
dermodie and Clanteige 
revoe on the west." This 
Cathal never had any pos- 
sessions in the original ter- 
ritory (see No. 89 on this 
genealogy)of Vi-Fidhgeint.e or 
(seeNo .91 ) I't- Gairhre adhbha, 
in the present county Lim- 
erick;but he seems to have ac- 
quired a large tract of moun- 
tain territory in Corca Luighe, 
the original principality of 
theO'Driscolls,etc. : to which 
newly acquired district he 
transferred the tribe-name 
of his family, viz., "Gairbre" 
— a name which, by a strange 
whim of custom, was after- 
wards applied to a vast ter- 
ritory now forming four 
baronies in the county Cork. 




This extension of the name 
looks strange, as it was 
transferred since the year 
1200, and as the race who 
transferred it did not remain 
the dominant family in the 
district. The fact seems to 
have heen that, when Mac- 
Carthy reagh got possession 
of a part of this territory, in 
the latter end of the thir- 
teenth century, the Ui- 
Cairhre mor were the most 
important tribe within it ; 
and that he and his descen- 
dants appUed the name to 
theO'Donovan territory and 
to all the minor cantreds 
annexed by him from time 
to time. 

116. Tadhg (or Teige) : 
son of Cathal. 

117. Murcha (Morogh, or 
Morgan) : his son. 

118. Concobhar (Conor, 
or Cornelius) : his son. 

1 1 9. Eaghnall (or Eandal): 
his son. According to Duald 
MacPirbis, this Eaghnall 
had a son named Dermod, 
who was the ancestor of all 
the subsequent chiefs of the 
O'Donovans ; and Collins 
gives him a second son, 
Tioboid (or Toby), the an- 
cestor of a sept of the 
O'Donovans, called Sliochd 

Tioboid, who possessed a 
tract of land near the town 
of Skibbereen, where they 
built the castle of Gortna- 
clogh — the ruins of which 
still remain, and are shown 
on the Ordnance Map on a 
detached portion of the 
parish of Creagh. 

120. Dermod : son of 

121. Teige: his son; chief 
of Clancahill. 

122. Donall, commonly 
called Domhnallna g -croice 
ainn (or Donall of the 
hides) : his son ; was inau- 
gurated chief of Clancahill 
by MacCarthy reagh, about 
the year 1560 ; was fostered 
by O'Leary at his castle of 
Carrignacurra (now called 
" Castle Masters"), situated 
in theparish of Inchageelagh 
or Ive-Leary ; and it would 
appear that it was by 
O'Leary 's assistance that he 
was enabled to set aside his 
rival Diarmaid [Dermod] 
O'Bhaire. It was this Donall 
who, according to Collins, 
built Castle Donovan ; but 
others think that parts of 
this castle are much older 
than his time. He died, 
A.D. 1584, and was succeeded 
by the elder of his two legi- 




timate* sons — 1. Donall, 
2. Teige. 

128. Donall (2): son of 
Donall ; burned to the 
ground the bishop's house at 
Ross, which had been a 
short time before built by 
William Lyon, bishop of 
Cork, Cloyne, and Eossf ; 
died in 1639. In February 
1592, his brother Teige at- 
tempted to depose this 
Donall on the score of " il- 
legitimacy", but failed. 

124. Donall (3) : his son ; 
was dispossessed of his 
estates by Oliver Cromwell; 
died in 1660 ; had a brother 
named Eichard]:. 

125. Donall (4): son of 
Donall (8) ; petitioned King 
Charles the Second of Eng- 
land to restore to him his 
father's landed property. 

126. Captain Eichard 
O'Donovan : son of Donall 
(4) ; married, in 1708, 
Blliuor Fitzgerald, daughter 
of the Knight of Kerry, by 
whom he had several child- 
ren — 1. Donall, his succes- 
sor ; 2. Eichard, who died 
unmarried ; and some 
daughters, the eldest of 
whom was Elizabeth, who 
married Sylvester O'Sullivan 
head of the sept called 
" MacFineenduff", of Der- 
reenavurrig, near Kenmare, 
in the county Kerry,by whom 
she had a numerous issue. 

127. Donall (5): son of 
Captain Richard. 

128. Eichard (2): his son; 
married, in 1800, Emma 
Anne Powell, a Welsh lady, 
by whom he had no issue. 

* Legitimate : This Donall was married to Ellen, the daughter of 
O'Leary, at the church of Drumali, after having had by her Dermod 
O'Donovan and other sons, who were declared " illegitimate" by the 
English lord chancellor, Adam Loftus, in 1592. This Dermod 
O'Donovan was slain in the year loSl, at Lathach-na-n-damh, by 
Donall O'Sullivan, who afterwards became The O'Sullivan Beare — 
as we learn from the Annals of the Four Masters, and from O'Sullivan 
Beare's Hist. Cathol. Iber. Compend.

XRiehard: This Richard O'Donovan married Mary, daughter of 
O'Sullivan Beare (and granddaughter, by her mother, of Lord Mus- 
kerry, and great granddaughter of the Earl of Clanrickard), and by 
her had two sons — 1. Donall (or Daniel) ; 2. Murrogh, who left a 
daughter named Joane.

*Caisiol: This word is compounded of the old Irish cas, "a 
house" (Lat., Ital., and Span, casa), and iol or aoil, Irish, " lime " ; 
so that caisiol signifies " a building of stone and lime mortar." 
Whence the house or court of the Kings of Cashel was called Caisiol, 
at least as early as St. Patrick's time : a fact which proves that the 
old Irish knew and practised the art of building with stone and lime 
mortar, before the introduction of Christianity into Ireland. 

According to Oiraldus Cambrensis, the Castle of Pembroke was, by 
Arnulphus De Montgomery (son of the great earl of Shropshire, and 
son-in-law of Mortogh mor O'Brien, King of Ireland, who died A.n. 
1119), buUt with sods or twigs lined about with sods of earth : " ex 
virgis et cespite tenui." It would therefore appear that the English 
people at that time knew nothing of the art of building with stone 
and mortar ; '"since" says Ur. O'Brien, " so great and opulent a man 
as Arnulphus did not put it in practice with regard to his Castle of 
Pembroke ; which was the more necessary, as he designed it for the 
preservation of the conquest he had made of the county of Pembroke. 
As to the old Britons, so far were they ignorant of the art of building 
stone work, that when Niniac, who converted the southern Picts, 
built his church of stone and lime mortar, they called it cdndida casa 
or 'white house' ; being the first structure of the kind, as Bede 
observes, that was seen in Britain."

That venerable ruin is situate within a few yards of the hall-door of

the tomb of his lordship's family lies immediately in front of the

of " lolar", in Scotland, uttered the following words :— 

" Dhia heannachd an la ! agus Eirichibh air sgiath nam Beann 
lolar oig uasal a'h-Albainn." 

And the exclamation of the Highlander, who last saw " lolar'' 
and Catherine Bruce, his wife, was : — 
" On beannachd dhuib-se uasail aillidh rothaitneach do dh'-Albainn.

* MacNieol: In a lately publislied work, purporting to give 
the " History of the Scottish Ulana," it is stated that this Clan was 
of Norwegian origin. No doubt the Clan, from time to time, may 
have made several marriage alliances with Danish and Norwegian 
families ; but the Clan MacNieol was of Irish extraction ! Gregall 
MacNieol, who is No. 113 on the foregoing pedigree, acquired historic 
notability by his opposition to and defeat of the Danes and Nor- 
wegians : a fact which, in itself, would go to prove that the Clan 
MacNieol is not of Danish or Norwegian descent. 

t Eoin : According to some records the three names between this 
Eoin and Donald, No. 124, are as follows :— No. 121, Nicaill (.3); No. 
122, Andreas ; and No. 123, Nicaill (4). It would however appear 
that the members of this Clan had a great partiality for marrying 
into their own families ; from which cause the names of the sons-in- 
law, in those three generations, may have been inserted for those of 
the sous, or, vice versa : being of the same simame.

Ie (see the first series) was the fifth son of Milesius of 
Spain, but the second of the three who left any issue ; from 
him the following families, along with others given in the 
first series, are descended :

+ Dana : This Donall was the ancestor o£ Dawney, and, it is said,

Headfordshire or Border names —derived from the Anglo-Norman

ancient Irish Cruit Evans wrote : " Ex sex ohordis felinis constat, 
nee "eodem modo quo viohnum modulatur, quamvis a figura hand 
multum abludat." 

f Saorbreitheamh : This word is compounded of the Irish saor, a 
workman, a carpenter, a builder, a joiner, a mason ; and breitheamh, 
a judge. Some of the descendants of this Saorbreitheamh were, by 
way of eminence, called Mac-an-t Saoir (literally, "the sous or 
descendants of the workman"), which has been anglicised Mac/ntyre, 
Carpenter, Joiner, Judge, Mason, etc. It was my mistake in the 
first series, page 227, to give "Maolntyre" as synonymous with 
"O'Mictyre", chiefs of Hy-MacCaille, now the barony of "Imokilly" 
in the county Cork; for, O'Mictyre ("mactire": Irish, a wolf) is 
quite distinct from Mac-an-t Saoir, and has been anglicised Wolf.

16. — The Stem of the " Mulcahy" Family. 

John, a younger brother of Eoger caoch who (in this 
series) is No. 114 on the "Moore" i^edigree, was the ances- 
tor of Mulcahy, or (as it has also been anglicised and 
frequently spelled) Mulchay.'^ 

* Mulchay : From a similarity in the pronunciation of the names, 
some were of opinion that Maolcaich, who is mentioned in the Stowe 
Missal, might have been the ancestor of this familj'. The original 
MS. of that Missal was written in an ancient Lombardic character 
which may well be deemed older than the sixth century. {The 
Missal is supposed to be that of St. Ruadhan, the founder of the 
Monastery of Lorha, in North Tipperary, who died A.D. 584.) The 
learned Dr. O'Connor says that portions of the MS. are written in a 
second and much later hand ; and, at page 71, at the end of the 
Canon of the Mass, the name of the second scribe is given : " Maol- 
caich scrip/lit." The fiev. Dr. Todd says that the latter writing, by 
Maolcaich, must be referred to the eighth century; which furnishes a 
strong additional evidence of the high antiquity of the original. — See 
the " Ecclesiastical Record", for September, 1870.

Ardfinnan in the county Tipperary, at the time of the Cromwellian 
invasion of Ireland ; and, during the siege of Clonmel, was seized 
upon by a reconnoitering party of Cromwell's cavalry. Of him, Dr. 
Moran (in his Historical Sketch of the Persecutions suffered by the 
Catholics of Ireland under the Rule of Cromwell ami the Puritans. 
Dublin : James Duffy. 1862.) says : " Immediately on his arrest, he 
-was bound in irons, conducted to the camp of the besiegers and offered 
his pardon, should he only consent to use his influence with the in- 
habitants of Clonmel, and induce them to deliver up the town. These 
terms he rejected with scorn. He was consequently led out in sight 
of the besieged walls, and there beheaded whilst he knelt in prayer 
for his faithful people and asked forgiveness for his enemies."

38.— The- "Dillon" Family. 

LocHAN dilmhain (by some called "Lochan dilionn," 
from the Irish cUle, "a flood") was, according to the 
" Book of Armagh," ancestor of Dillon, of Guircneach or 
" Dillon's Country," in the county Westmeath; and was, 
according to some of the Irish genealogists, brother of 
Colman Mor (king of Meath), and of Aldus (or Hugh) 
Slaine, the 141st monarch of Ireland : all three, (those 
genealogists say,) the sons of Dermod, the 133rd mon- 
arch, who was son of Fergus Cearrbheoil, son of ConaU 
Creamthann (the first Christian king of Meath), son of 
Niall of the Nine Hostages, the 126th monarch. And it 
is stated that the said Lochan killed the said Colman 
Mor, for refusing to let him enjoy his proportion of the 
kingdom of Meath, called Guircneach ; and therefore fled 
into France, where he and his posterity remained until 
KobertLe Dillon, lineally descended from the said Lochan, 
came into Ireland (with those that Dermod MacMorogh 
invited out of England to assist him in the recovery of 
his kingdom of Leinster,) and laid claim to the said terri- 
tory of Guircneach ; which having made appear, after 


some contest and strife, O'Melaglilin, then king of Meath, 
was, by the interposition and mediation of O'Molloy and 
MacGeoghagan, then powerful men in the country, content 
he should enjoy ; and, accordingly, he and his posterity 
possessed that territory from that time down to the Crom- 
wellian confiscations of Ireland, in the seventeenth 

That the said Lochan dilmhain'" was the ancestor of 
Dillon, Del'ion, or DiUnne, or that he fled inio France 
upon the murder of his brother, is not gainsayed ; but 
that he was brother of either Aldus Slaine (the 141st 
monarch of Ireland), or of Colman Mor, king of Meath, is 
contradicted by " The Book of the Eeigns of the Irish 
Monarchs", where, giving an account of the reign of the 
monarch Aodh Slaine, it is stated : 

" Aodh (or Aidus) Slaine (sou of Dermod, sou of Fergus Cearb- 
heoil), aud Colman rimidh, the 142nd monarch, son of Baodan (or 
Boetanus), the 137th monarch, son of Murchertus Mor MaoEarca, 
the 131st monarch, son of Muredach, son of Eoghan, son of Niall 
Mor (or Niall of the Nine Hostages), reigned jointly for six years, 
until Colman (rimidh) was slain by Lochan dilmhain, sou of Baodan, 
son of Muriartus or Murchertus Mor MacEarca, son of Muredach ; 
and Aidus Slaine was killed by Conall Guthbhinn." 

According to this extract, it is evident that Lochan 
dilmhain was brother of Colman rimeach (or rimidh), the 
142nd monarch (whom he killed) and not the brother of 
Colman Mor, who was king of Meath, but never monarch 
of Ireland ; for, Lochan dilmhain was the fourth genera- 
tion after Eoghan, son of Niall Mor, and Colman Mor was 
the third generation after Conall Creamthann, brother of 
Eoghan — both sons of the said Niall Mor (or Niall of the 
Nine Hostages), above mentioned. 

No account can be given of the generations from the 
said Lochan dilmhain to the said Eobert Le Dillon, who 
was called "Eobert the Sacsanach" (or Eobert the English- 
man), because he came over with the English at the time 
of the English invasion of Ireland ; but, as Eoderick 
O'Connor, brother of Cathal craobh-dearg, who (see the 
first series) is No. 112 on the " O'Connor" (Connaught) 

" Dilmhain : This name has been also anglicised Dillane, which 
has been modernized Delane. 




pedigree, was the Irish monarch at the time of that inva- 
sion, we may assume that Robert Le Dillon was of the 
same (112th) generation as the monarch Eoderiek 
O'Connor ; and that there must have been twenty genera- 
tions between Lochan dilmhain and his descendant

a young man of great spirit and valour, then only in the twenty-first 
year of his age, raised an insurrection against the English in Ulster ; 
being unable to tolerate the insolence and tyranny of Sir George 
Paulett, Governor of Derry. O'Dogherty and his forces having sur- 
prised Deny, they slew Paulett and most of the garrison, and 
burned the town ; he also took the fort of Culmore, near Derry, from 
Captain Hart; and gave the command of the fortress to a valiant chief 
named Felim MaoDavett. O'Dogherty ravaged the settlements of the 
English ia various parts of Derry, Donegal, and Tyrone ; and 
defeated their forces in several engagements. Marshal Wingfield and 
Sir Oliver Lambert marched against him with four thousand men ; 
and having advanced to Culmore, MacDavett, unable to defend the 
place against so great a force, set fire to the fortress, and sailed off 
with his men towards Derry, carrying away some of the cannon, and 
throwing the rest into the sea. Wingfield then advanced against tiurt 
Castle, the chief residence of O'Dogherty, near Lough Swilly. Mao- 
Geoghegan says the castle was commanded by a monk, who, not 
having a sufficient force to defend it, and not wishing to subject, to 
the dangers of a siege, O'Dogherty's lady, who was Mary Preston, 
daughter of lord Gormanstown, surrendered the castle on condition 
that the garrison should be spared ; but Wingfield put most of them

106. Fearleighinn.''= 106. Flannagan. 

At this stage in this family pedigree, King Henry the 
Second of England invaded Ireland, a.d. 1172 ; and by 
his Charter to Hugh DeLacey, granting liim the kingdom 
of Meath, dispossessed the 0' Harts of their patrimony, 
as Princes of Tara, in that kingdom. Thus dispossessed, 
the family was scattered : some of them settled in England, 
some in Scotland, some in Prance, some in Germany, etc., 
and some of them remained in Ireland. Branches of 
them who settled in Leinster called themselves Hait or 
Hon ; in England, Harte and, more lately, Harl ; in Scot- 
land, Hart ; in France, Hart, LeHart, Harts. Hardies, 
Hardis ; in Germany, Hart, Hartt, Hartz, Hardts, Herdts, 
etc. In parts of Ireland some of the family anglicised the 
name Harte, Hairt, Hairtt, Hairtte, Hartte ; and, in Scot- 
land, according to MacPherson, Artlw, or Arthur. 

* Fearleighinn [farlane] : This word means " a lecturer" ; while 
MacLeigkinn means "a scholar", "a student." The name is 
derived from the Irish Jear, " a man", and leighionn, " a lesson" 
"instruction", " erudition" ; and implies that the man who was so 
called was a person of superior education. Some consider that this 
Fearleighinn was the ancestor of MacFarlane. 



73. — The " Haete " (of England) Family. 

Stephen Harte, of "Westmill, Hertfordshire, England, is 
the first of the name recorded as living in that Country ; 
where, possibly, his father or grandfather settled after the 
English invasion of Ireland by King Henry the Second, 
A.D. 1172. From the said Stephen down to the present 
time the Harte (of England) pedigree, is as follows : — 

1. Stephen Harte,* of 
Westmill, Hertfordshire. 

2. Havekin, of Westmill, 
his son. 

3. WilUam, of Westmill : 
his son ; afterwards of 
Abbotsbury and Papworth 
in Cambridgeshire. 

4. William, of Papworth : 
his son ; returned to Hert- 
fordshire. This William was 
twice married : — first, to 
Mary, daughter of John 
Humphreys, by whom he 
had a son and heir named 

John; secondly, to Alice , 

by whom he had a son 
named William. 

5. John : eldest son of the 
said William Harte, of Pap- 
worth ; living a.d. 1430 ; 
married to Joane, daughter 
of William Dayly of Lincoln- 

6. WUliam, of St. Dun- 
stan's, in the west of 
London, and of Ware, in 
Hertfordshire : son of John ; 
was married to Alice, 
daughter of Eobert Sutton, 
of London ; living in 1480 ; 
had a sister named Alice, 
who was wife of William 
Callow, of Sholford, Kent, 
one of the English Judges. 

7. John Harte, of the 

*Steplien Harte : Considering tliat John Harte, No. 5 on tMs Stem 
was living, a.d. 1430, and that between a.d. 1172 (when King 
Henry II. invaded Ireland) and 1430 there elapsed a period of 258 years, 
the ancestor of this Stephen Harte who first settled in England could 
have been his father or, at nkost, his grandfather ; for, taking 36 
years as the average age of each generation of the family, 258 
divided by 36 would give seven generations. But the said John was 
the fifth ia descent down from Stephen ; then counting back to the 
said Stephen's grandfather would make at most seven generations. 
As, therefore, it was at that period (see the foregoing " Harte" 
pedigree) that the e final was first added to the anglicised form of 
the Irish name O'h-Airt, there is reason to believe that the said 
Stephen Harte of WestmUl, Hertfordshire, England, was of Irish 
■origin ; and was descended from the O'Hart family. — See the 
" O'Hart" pedigree.

* Henry : The name Heniy is derived from the Irish An righ, 
■"the king." This Heary O'Kane is considered to have been so- 
called after one of the Henrys, kings of England. As MacHenry 
and Fitzhenry signify " the sons or descendants of Henry", and that 
Harry is the common name for "Henry", some are of opinion that 
"MacHenry" is another name for Harriton, which would mean "the 
son of Harry" ; and that Harris and FiizharriH are bracches of the 
" Clann Henry."

grandfather of John Ormsby, Esq., of Ballina, living in 1878. 

Hugo's son, Frederick Morgan Sweeny, was married to a daughter 
(born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) of George Ormsby, Esq. , of 
Sligo, son of George Ormsby, Esq., and Ellinor Morgan, his wife ; 
and this last mentioned George was son of George Ormsby, Esq.,

137. — The Stem op the " Michil" Family. 

Maoin, a brother of Muirceartach (latinized " Muriar- 
tus") Mor MacEarca, the 181st monarch of Ireland, and 
who (see the first series) is No. 90 on " The stem of the 
House of Heremon", was the ancestor of 0' Maolmicheille ;

michil, "of the Battle Axes" 
("blein" : Irish, the groin) : 
his son ; a quo MacBleinneX 
and O'Bleinne. 

At this stage in this genealogy the family was expelled 
by the O'Connors, of Connaught, from Corca Eachlinn ; 
when they settled in the county Clare, at Boon Maolmichiall 
which they possessed up the time of the Cromwellian 
confiscations in Ireland. In 1554 the castle of Doon Maol- 
michiall was besieged by the O'Briens ; and Owen O'Maol- 

* Michil : Another family of this name, whose pedigree I did not 
yet meet, is descended from GioUamichiall, a descendant of OoUa-da- 
■criooh, who (see the first series) is No. 85 on the '' O'Hart" pedigree; 
but, while, Maolmichiall, No. 97 on the foregoing stem, literally 
means " bald Michael", the name Giollamicliialt means " the devoted 
of St. Michael.-' 

t Giolla: This Giolla blein O'Maolmichil, " of the Battle Axes" 
possessed the Tuatha (or Noith Corca Eachlinn) in the county Ros- 
common, near the river Arigna, a branch of the Shannon. 

J MacBleinne : It is considered that Blean, Blain, Blane, Mac- 
Blane, and MacBlaine, are anglicised forms of this Irish sirname. 


michil, of Doon Maolmichiall and Killowen, was tlie 
last of the family who possessed that estate — of which he 
was deprived by Oliver Cromwell. From this Owen 
descended Daniel O'Mulvihill, of Knockanira, county 
Clare, who died in 1820. This Daniel had two sons — 1. 
Charles ; 2. Daniel, of Eilglassy, county Clare ; and whose 
brother, Henry Mulville, was a Medical Doctor in Dublin: 
this Henry had a son named Urquhart. Daniel O'Mulvi- 
hill, Eilglassy, had three sons, the eldest of whom was 
Charles Mulville. 

It is said ihat Maolmichiall, No. 97 on the foregoing 
pedigree, did, in his advanced age, shave his head, and 
become a monk, very eminent for his sanctity : hence his 
name, which signifies " bald Michael " ; on account of the 
monks sJutving their heads in the tonsure. He had been a 
chief or 'prmce of Titatha Corca Eachlinn (or " the north 
swampiy plain '"), on the banks of the river Arigna (a 
tributary of the river Shannon), in the county Eoscommon. 
In the " 3founsticon " is mentioned, as an eminent eccle- 
siastic of this name, a dean of Cluan Dochrach, and 
professor of Divinity of Cluan MacNorisk. 

The " Annals of the Four Masters", O'Dugan's " Topo- 
graphy ", Lynch, in his Camhrensis Aversus, and the Books 
of Leacan and Ballymote all mention this family as lords 
of Corca Eachlinn, which they continued to hold down to 
about A.D. 1416. The " Four Masters" state, under the 
year 1189, that on the trial, for treason, of the son of 
Eoger (or Eoderick) O'Connor, king of Connaught, by the 
chiefs and nobles of Connaught, O'Maolmichiall (or O'Maol- 
michil) was the fourth on the list. Under the year 1210, the 
" Four Masters" also state that the O'Conors of Connaught 
invaded Corca Eachlinn, but were beaten out of it with 
loss by O'Maolmichil ; and, in 1232, a similar event took 
place, in which O'Conor's son, MacDermott, and O'Eelly 
were all slain by O'Maolmichil, " of the Battle Axes " : 
which raised the hero's fame so high, that it became an 
adage to say — " Maolmichil of the Battle Axes could not 
accomplish it." The O'Conors, however, eventually 
expelled the O'Maolmichil family from Corca Eachlinn ; 
when they settled in the county Clare, at Doon Maolmichil, 
which they lost by confiscation in Cromwell's time.

* Christian : I have traced this family bacli: to Gilbert Christiait, 
a native of Scotland, who settled in the North of Ireland, a.d. 1702, 
and there married Margaret Eichardson, by whom he had children : 
that Gilbert was, I find, the great-great-grandfather of J. R. 
Christian, living in 1877, in Holly Springs, Mississipi, United States, 
America; subject to whose correction 1 write this notice of his 
family. And, I find, that Duncan Campbell of Inverary, Scotland, 
whose wife was Mary McCoy, and who settled in Ireland at the 
time of the " Plantation of Ulster", by King James II. of England, 
was one of Mr. Christian's maternal ancestors. This Duncan lived 
near Londonderry, where his son Patrick Campbell purchased some 
land. Patrick's youngest son, John, when far advanced in life, 
migrated to America, a.d. 1726 : from him a,nd his numerous children 
and other kindred have descended a large progeny, spread over the 
Southern States of the American Union. 

In 1722, the above mentioned Gilbert Christian, accompanied by 
a large number of his countrymen, migrated to America; and, having 
some time remained in Pennsylvania, he ultimately settled in 
Virginia, whither many of his name and family had preceded him 
from Ireland. Israel Christian, a Scot, once a merchant in Dublin, 
followed him ; and among those who then also went to America from 
various counties in Ulster were members of the following families : 
—Allen, Brakenridge, Campbell, Christian, Cunningham, Given, 
Henry, Lewis, Lockhart, MoClanahan, McCue, [MacHugh], 
McDonald, McDowell, McGavock, Montgomery, Rertou (or Eeieton), 
Russell, Trimble, Wilson, etc. The descendants of those families, 
in America have there so multiplied during a residence of a century 
and three quarters iii the country, and have become so connected by 
marriage, as to constitute a relationship between a large proportion 
of the population of the Southern United States : disclosing the 
important fact that the people of that vast region in America are 
almost entirely Celtic.

* Failge : This word is the origin of the terms Faley (as in the

(Rosa : Irish, " arose" ; Lat ro'ia ; failge : Irish, " an ouohe", " a 
ring", "a jewel", " a wreath",) means " Rossa of the Jewels", etc. 

t Trowse : A trouse or truwse was a tightfitting article of dress that 
comprised in one piece "britches, stockings, and socks or sandals." 
We read that Sir John Perrot, lord deputy of Ireland, would not 
admit members habited in the Irish mantle (or cloak) and trowse, 
to attend the i'arliament he had convoked, a.d. 1586 ; and to induce 
those members summoned to that assembly to appear in English 
attire, he bestowed both " gownes and cloakes of velvet and aatten on 
some of them " : a full dress, whatever it might be now, not being an 
inappropriate E;ift for a gentleman, at a time when a rich robe was 
often a most acceptable present to the Queen. — See Ware. 

t Cloaks : From the Irish word brear, which means " speckled or 
of various colours", some of the Gauls were called Oalli braccufi, and 
their country Gallia braccata. Diodorus Siculus {Lib. 6,) mentions 
that the garments of those Gauls were rough and party-coloured ; 
and calls them Braccce. Dr. O'Brien, in his Irish Dictionary' 
observes at the word "breacan", that the Irish Scots preserved this 
kind of garment up to his time (a.d. 1768). Breac, "a trout" is 
so called from the various colours of its skin.

hold and standing in Meath, by marrying into the family of 
"O'Melaghlin," of that ancient kingdom. Walter DeLacy having 
by charter secured to the said O'Hagan all his acquired territorial 
rights, titles, and interests in Meath, O'Hagan changed his name to 
Fagan; and thereafter was a devoted follower of the standard amd 
fortunes of his Anglo-Norman friend and protector. Thus we see 
that " Fagan" is of Irish, and not of English, descent.

"O'Hart: As an illustration of the transitions which many of the an- 
cient Irish simames underwent, it may be observed that, in the early 
ages, the "O'Hart" family was called Cin-Airt and Muintir-Airt, 
meaning respectively, the " kiudred," and the "people of Art Ean 
Fhear" (or Art Enaar), the 112th Monarch of Ireland, and the an- 
cestor of the family ; but, after the introduction of sirnames in Ireland, 
the family name was at one time Ua-Airt, next Ua-'Airi (using the 
aspirate before the name " Airt "), next Ua Hairt, and lastly O'A- 
A>rt, anglicised O'Hart, etc. — See the " Harte " pedigree, for the

time some of the family 
estates in the harony of Car- 
bery, county Sligo, were 
held by Bryan O'Hairt and 
Owen O'Hairtt ; and others 
in the barony of " Leny", 
same county, by Katherine 
Hairtt, Phelim Hart, and 
this Phelim O'Hart— all 
" Papist Proprietors" whose 
estatest were confiscated by 

plain extending between the ri^ ers Liffey and the Boyne, from the city 
of Dublin to the town of Drogheda, thence to Kells in the county 
Meath. and containing the districts about Tara, Trim, Navan, Ath- 
boy, Dunboyne, Maynooth, Clane, Celbridge, Luoan, Leixlip, and all 
that part of the county Dublin north of the river Liftey. The "Mag- 
nificent Plain " here mentioned contains about half a million of acres 
of the finest land in Ireland ; and, up to the English invasion, formed 
a portion of O'Hart's Country. 

[At that time Kells, in the principality of Tara, was called Ceanan- 
>ias ("ceann ": Iri&b., a head ; " eeannas", authority, power); where, 
according to O'Brien, " a national council of the clergy of Ireland 
was held about the year 1152 ; in which councO, Cardmal Papyron, 
gave the first Pallia to the four Archbishops of Ardmagh, Cashel, 
Dublin, and Tuam."] 

Dispossessed by King Henry II., of their territories in the Kingdom 
of Meath, the O'Hart family settled — some of them in Leinster, some 
in Ulster, some in England, some in Scotland, some in Prance, 
some in Germany, and this the senior branch of the family settled in 
that part of Connaught, now known as the county Sligo.

caoch, who was the father of Conor, the father of Hugh ; William 

(3) was the father of Conor, who was the father of Bryan ; and Rory

I Estates : In his description of Connaught, A.D. 1614, Sir Oliver 
St. John states that •' The O'Dowds, the MacDonoghs, the O'Hares, 
and the O'Harts, retained the residue of the county Sligo, besides that 
which O'Connor Sligo held." For further information in connection

Oliver Cromwell. It is wor- 
thy of remark that, on the 
accession of King Charles 
II. (who, himself, had 
drunk deeply of the bitter 
cup of adversity, during the 
"Protectorate"of Cromwell), 
not even a portion of their 
estates was restored to any 
member of this family. The 
only inheritance that re- 
mained to this Phelim was 
his poor but proud birthright, 
as " Hereditary Prince of 
Tara" ; but, so intense at 
that time was the hatred 
which poUtical and religious 
differences had created be- 
tween the English and the 
Irish peoples, and so great 
the antipathy then existing 
in England towards every- 
thing Irish, it is not to be 
wondered at that his "birth- 
right" did not serve him, 
for, unhappily, those were 
sad times in Ireland !

(" gruama" : Irish, sullen, 
morose) : the sou of Phelim 
O'Hart ; chief of his name ; 
living in 1708.

of his name. 

122. Shane (2) : his son ; 
the last recognized chief of 
his name ; married Mary, 
daughter of Manus mor 0'- 
Laydon. To hide his pover- 
ty, this Shane migrated! 
from the county Sligo to the 
neighbouring county Mayo ; 
and there, in comparative 
retirement, far from home 
and kindred, settled near 
his wife's friends on a 
farm at Doonbreeda, which 
they procured for him on the 
Bourke (of Carrowkeel) pro- 
perty, in Glen Nephin. 
He was buried in the O'Lay- 
don burial-ground in CHI 
Muire (Kill Mary), now 
called " Kilmurry ", in the 
parish of Grossmolina, bar- 
ony of Tyrawley, and said 

* Gruama : In the Betliam Genealogical Collections, the epithet 
applied to this Douoch ia incorrectly written yranna. But the 
epithet which is properly applied to him in other State records is 
gruama, which in his case is a very significant one; for, he naturally 
became suUen in manner, when he found that his patrimonial estates 
were unjustly and hopelessly confiscated. Crushed by the Crom- 
wellian settlement in Ireland, this Donoch had not left him, of hia 
own, whereon to lay his head. 

f Migrated : After the Cromwellian confiscations in Ireland some 
of this family migrated to America ; and (see No. 15 in Note, page 
78) John Hart, one of their descendants, was one of the Signatories 
to the " Declaration of American Independence", on the 4th July,

" Let Fate do her worst there are relics of joy, 
Bright dreams of the past, which she cannot destroy ; 
Which come in the night-time of sorrow and care, 
And bring back the features that joy used to wear." 


The foregoing are the pedigrees of those Milesian Irish 
families which, as yet, I have been able to collect ; and I 
need not say the collection and compilation of those genea- 
logies were to me a " labour of love." In respect to any 
inaccuracies or blemishes which may be found in the 
Work, I trust that the magnitude of my labour will plead 
my excuse. Any inaccuracies, however, which may be 
pointed out to me, in this or the first volume, shall be 
corrected in future editions ; and the blemishes, if any, 

It will be observed that some of the genealogies are 
traced down to the time of the English invasion of Ireland; 


some, to the reign of Queen Elizabeth; some, to the 
Plantation of Ulster ; some, to the Cromwellian, and 
others to the Williamite, confiscations ; and some down to 
this year of our Lord, 1878. But I am satisfied that, so 
far as my sources of information enabled me to do so, each 
generation of each pedigree is faithfully recorded. 

It will be also seen that, of those families whose pedi- 
grees are continued down to 1878, some contain more 
generations than others ; but this is easily accounted for 
by the fact, that many of the names recorded in the Irish 
Genealogies were Chiefs of Clans, and that the Chiefs of 
dominant Irish families in the past were often slain in 
early manhood : because, in war, the Chief headed his 
Clan, and, thus in front of the battle, was always exposed to 
the onslaught of his foe. Hence the average age of the 
generations is low in the Pedigrees of those families which 
longest continued to be dominant ; thus accounting for the 
greater number of generations. 

To render Irish Pedigrees as interesting as possible to 
future generations of those Irish, Norman-Irish, and Anglo- 
Irish families, whose genealogies are recorded in the Work, 
I would receive reliable information from the represent- 
atives of those famihes, at home, or abroad, who can, from 
where I leave off in any genealogy, continue their 
pedigrees down to themselves ; with the view of having 
such information, when verified, inserted in future editions 
of this, or the first, volume. And, as this Work caters to 
the prejudices of no sect or party, there is, under the 
mild sway of our gentle Sovereign, no valid reason for with- 
holding such information ; on the contrary, the man who 
can assist in rescuing his family genealogy from oblivion, 
and will not do so, incurs, in my opinion, the reproach so 
justly applied by Sir Walter Scott in the following lines, 
to him, if such there be, whose soul is dead to " Love of 
Country" : 

High thougli his titles, proud his name, 
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim ; 
Despite those titles, power and pelf, 
The wretch, concentred all in self. 
Living, shall forfeit fair renown, 
And, doubly dying, shall go down 
To the vile dust, from which he sprung, 
TJnwept, unhououred and unsung. 


The savage loves his native shore, 

Though rude the soil and chill the air; 

Then why shouldn't Erin's sons adore 
An Isle which nature formed so fair ? 


While some of the genealogies recorded under this heading 
are of Anglo-Norman origin, it will be seen that others of 
them are of Irish descent, which were heretofore considered 
as of foreign extraction. No doubt, the love of country for 
which the Celts, in whatever clime, have ever heen proverb- 
ial, may have led some of those families to return to 
Ireland, as opportunities offered ; for, if Scotland's friendly 
Bard could admire the Emerald Isle, as by him expressed 
in the stanza which heads this page, it is not difficult to 
understand why, in weal or in woe, the Irish Celt, in exile, 
so intensely loves his native country, or the loved land of 
his fathers, that he ever feels a home sickness to visit his — 

" First flower of the earth and first gem of the sea."

2. — The " Bebmingham" Family. 

William, of Birmingham, in Warwickshire, in England 
(and who was therefore called " William de Bermingham"), 
held from Gervas de Paganell (a quo Bagenall anA Bagnall), 
baron of Dudley, nine knights' fees de veleri feoffamento ; 
and had two sons — I.Peter, who staid in England; and 
2. Meyler, who was the first of the family that, in 1170, 
come with Richard Strongbow into Ireland, and was the 
third in command of that expedition. 

1. Meyler DeBermingham: 
son of WUliam ; was the an- 
cestor of aU those of that 
sirname in Ireland. He 
had three sons — 1. GUbert, 
of Moigh ; 2. Piers ; 3. -John, 
who was lord justice of Ire- 
land. From the first and 
third son I find no issue ; 
but the second son left 
issue — 

2. Piers : second son of 

3. Eickard : his son ; who 
was called Risdeard na-gcath 
(meaning " Eichard of the 
Battles "), from the many 
battles by him fought and 

won; amongst which were 
the battle of Togher, the 
battle of Finlo, and the 
battle of Atha-na-Riogh (lit- 
erally the "Ford of the 
Kings"), now called Athenry. 
from the kings there slain, 
viz. — the king of Connaught; 
'Kelly, king of Hy- Maine ; 
together with most of the 
nobihty of Connaught and 
Munster, who in those days 
were called petty kings of 
the territories they possess- 
ed. According to some 
annalists this Eickard na- 
gcath left three sons — 1. 
Thomas, who, on the win- 




ning of that liattle, was 
created "baron of Athenry", 
2. William, who was arch- 
bishop of Tuam ; 3. Richard 
ruadh, who was ancestor 
of the J3erminghams of 
Leinster, and whose son, 
Sir John DeBermingham, 
was created "earl of Louth", 
by King Edward the Second, 
A.D. 1319, for the service 
performed by him and Sir 
Bichard LeTuite in a great 
battle by them fought 
against Edward Le Bruice 
(or Edward Bruce), brother 
of Eobert Bruce, king of 
Scotland, at Faughart, near 
Diindalk, in which battle 
the said Edward Bruce was 
slain (some sa.y by the hands 
of SirEiohard LeTuite), and 
his army routed and most 
of them slain. 

In other copies (of the 

" Genealogies") I find the 
said Risdeard na-gcath to 
have another son named 
Piers, from whom the lords 
barons of Athenry were des- 
cended, as follows : — 

4. Piers : son of Richard 
na gcath.

' ' defender of the Christians 
in the Holy War."

of King Eichard the First 
(Ccnir De Lion), and widow of 
Llewellyn, prince of Wales ;

Hugh O'Conor, the last king 
of Connaught. The issue 
of this Una was Eicard oge

A.D. 1177, made him "lord justice of Ireland," where, by his second 
wife, Una, he had one son called by some Eicard Og [oge], or Eick- 
ard the younger (to distinguish him from his elder brother Eicard 
Mor, or Eickard the Elder). These two Eicards were also each 
called " UiUiam" : namely, Uilliam Mor, or William the Elder ; and 
Uilliam Og, or the Younger William. 

It may be here observed that " William" is t/iffiam, in Gaelic; and 
" William the Younger" is Uilliam Og. As time rolled on, Uilliam 
Og was contracted to Uilleog, anglicised Ulick, which literally means 
" Young William." It is also right to mention that the name 
" Ulick" was special to the Bourke family.

England, made a grant of the province of Connaught, a.d. 1225 ; in 
1227 he was appointed " lord justice of Ireland " and " lord of Con- 
naught." This last title he acquired, some say, in right of hig 
mother, Una (or Agnes;, daughter of Hugh O'Conor, the last king of 
Connaught (by Ranalt, his wife, daughter of Awley O'Farrell, king 
of Conmaone). This Eicard Mor had two sons— 1. Walter, who 
became earl of Ulster ; 2. William, the progenitor of the Bourkes of 
Mayo, and after whom, some say, these Bourkes took the name 
"MacWilUam iachtar" ; -'iachtar" meaning lower or northern, com- 
pared to " MacWilliam uaclitar", which meant the upper (or Galway) 
MacWilliam (see Hardiman's far Connacht, page 39).

ler ; living in 1709. 

* Orace O'Malley : In 1575 lofd deputy Sidney wrote to the Coun- 
cil in London, that Grace O'Malley " was powerful in galleys and 
seamen." After having performed many remarkable exploits 
against the English, Grace was, as a matter of state policy, invited 
as a guest by Queen Elizabeth to London ; the reception which the 
Queen accorded to her was most gracious. She even offered, at 
parting, to make her a "Countess", which the proud Irishwoman 
refused, but accepted the title of " Earl " for her Infant son ; for it is 
a remarkable fact that, during the voyage from Clare Island, in Mayo, 
to Chester, where she landed, Grace O'Malley was delivered of a 
son — thence named Tioboid na Luinge (meaning " Toby or Theobald 
of the ship"), from whom descend the Viscounts Mayo. 

Dressed in the simple costume of her country — a yellow bodice and 
petticoat ; her hair gathered to the crown and fastened with a silver 
bodkin ; with a crimson mantle thrown over her shoulders, and 
fastened with a golden brooch, the Irish Cbieftainess approached 
Elizabeth, and addressed her as in "The Meeting of Grace O'Malley 
and Queen Elizabeth," No. 22 in the Appendix.

on the " Bourke" pedigree, was the ancestor of Burke, of 
Galway (or Clanricarde) ; who were called " Glanricarda

cond son of Uhck fionn ; 
married a daughter of 0' 
Madden, of Hy-Maine, by

this family. From this 
Eickard it is said that Rich- 
ards is derived. The elder 
brother of this Eickard was 
Ulick, who had a son named 
Eickard baccach : this UUck 
is entered by some genealo- 
gists as the "first earl of

(instead of the brother) of 
the said Eickard mor.

the ancestor of English. 

t John : The son of this John Burke was Thomas, the second vis- 
count Claremorris. The son of this Thomas was Oliver Richard 
Burke, the third viscount Claremorris, who, in 1657, under the Pro-

10. — The "Butler" Family. 

In Camden's Britannia, page 462, we find that the family 
of "Fitzwalter", alias " Botelere", alias Butler, derive 
their pedigree from the dukes of Normandy ; as follows : 

1. Eollo, of Norway, 
first duke of Normandy.* 

2. William longespee : 
his son ; the second duke. 

3. Richard I., the third 
duke : his son ; died a.d. 
986. This Eichard left two 
sons — 1. Eichard ; 2 God- 
frey, the consul, earl of 

4. Richard II., the fourth 
duke : his son. 

5. Robert : his son ; the 
fifth duke. 

6. William, duke of Nor- 
mandy, or " William the 
Conqueror" : his son ; the 
first King of England, of the 
Norman line. 

7. Henry the First : his 
son ; the second King of 
England, of this line. 

8. King Henry the Second 
of England : his son. Etc. 

Godfrey, the consul, earl of 
Bryomy, second son of Eich- 

ard I., the third duke of 
Normandy (who is No. 3. on 
this list), was the ancestor 
of DeClare (now Clare) ; and 
of Butler, in England and 

Gislebert the Norman, 
earl of Eu, came into Eng- 
land with William the Con- 
queror ; and had four sons : 
— 1. Gilsebert de Clare, earl 
of Clare, who was the an- 
cestor of Eichard Strongbow, 
earl of Pembroke, married 
to Eva, daughter of Dermod 
MacMorough, king of Lein- 
ster ; 2. Eoger ; 3. Walter ; 
and 4. Robert, who was an- 
cestor of Fitzwalter and 

Harvey Walter, who was 
lineally descended from the 
said Eobert, here last men- 
tioned, married a daughter 
of Gilbert Becket (and a 
sister of Thomas a Becket, 
the " Martyr", who was 

* Normandi) -. See " Dukes of Normandy ", iu the first series. 




lord archbishop of Canter- 
bury, and by her had issue 
— 1. Theobald Walter, who 
with all his family was ban- 
ished out of England, on 
account of the disfavour in 
■which Thomas a Beeket, 
archbishop of Canterbury, 
then stood with King Henry 
the Second. But soon after 
the murder of the said 
archbishop, and the king's 
pubhc penance for having 
been accessory to his death, 
Henry the Second recalled 
from banishment all the 
archbishop's friends and 
relatives, andpromoted them 
to great offices and employ- 
ments, particularly Theo- 
bald, son of the said Harvey 
Walter, for a time called 
"Theobald Walter", until 
the king took him into 
favour and sent him into 
Ireland with the title of 
" Chief Boteler" of that 
Jdngdom ; where by the 
king's royal bounty, his own 
prowess, and vahant beha- 
viour, he became very em- 
inent, and attained great 
and large possessions. 

Some antiquaries are of 
opinion that, from his of&ce 
of " chief boteler" or "chief 
butler" of Ireland, this 
Theobald Walter's posterity 
took the simame of Butlei ; 
but others hold that the 

name is derived from Robert 
(supposed to be " butler" to 
King William the Con- 
queror), who, in " Dooms- 
day Book", is called Robert- 
us Pineerna. This Robert 
Pineerna, with two others of 
the same name (whether his 
brothers or sons, I know 
not), called Hugo Pineerna, 
and Eichard Pineerna, held, 
each of them from the King, 
several towns in England : 
one of those three persons 
was grandfather of the above 
mentioned Walter. 

The Irish antiquaries who 
record the pedigrees of the 
old English families who 
came into Ireland with the 
" Conquest," and remained 
here ever since, give only 
the following names as im- 
mediately descending from 
father to son from the said 
Theobald Walter. 

1. Theobald Walter, alias 

2. Edmond Boteler : his 

3. Theobald ('2) : his son. 

4. Theobald (3) : his son. 

5. Theobald (4) : his son ; 
died A.D. 1249. 

6. Walter : his son. 

7. Edmond, of Eoscrea : 
his son. 

8. James : his son ; first 
" earl of Ormonde" ; created 
in 1328. 




9. James Balbh (or dumb 
James) : his son. 

10 James, earl of Gowran : 
his son ; had two brothers — 
— i. Theobald, 2. Pierse. 

11. Eichard: son of James. 

12. Edmond: his son. 

13. Pierse : his son. 

14. John : his son.

18. Thomas (2) : his son. 

19. James (4) : his son. 

20. Thomas (3) : his son. 

21. James (5) : his son ; 
was the first " duke of Or- 
monde" ; living in 1708 ; 
had a brother named Eichard 
Butler, of Kilcash. 

11. — The " Cooke" ofKilturra (County Sligo,) Family. 

O'Callaghan, in his "History of the Irish Brigades," 
states that this family settled in Ireland in the century 
after the Invasion ; which inclines me to believe that the 
" Cookes" in other parts of Ireland are distinct from 
them, and that the ancestor of this family* came to Ireland 
in the thirteenth century with Eoger De Bigod, earl of 

* Family : This family is traced down to Jolm Orsmby Cooke, Esq^., 
of Kilturra, county Sligo, and living in 1S78 ; who will pardon the 
Author for here inserting the foBowing remarks. In 1873, a friend 
casually sent him a copy of the SUfjo Independent, of the 29th March 
of that year ; together with a iDallad, headed " The Song of 
Kilturra" : both of which he filed — the ballad, solely for its metrical 
style, some stanzas of which are here subjoined. The tracing of this 
genealogy brought the circumstance to his recollection. Under the 
heading " Eejoiciugs at Kilturra", in that newspaper, a well- written 
article appears, from which the following is an extract : — "A corres- 
pondent informs us that the arrival home of Mr. J. Ormsby Cooke 
from Dublin to his residence, KUturra Abbey, after completing his 
title to his family property in Landed Estates Court, was made the 
subject of much rejoicing in the neighbourhood, Mr. Cooke receiving 
a very enthusiastic reception from Ms tenants, friends, and neigh- 
bours. It would seem that rumour had it that strangers were 
likely to outbid him ; and the people awaited the result with great 
interest , . . Large bonfires were lighted on the hills surround- 
ing Kilturra ; and, along the route from Ballymote, candles were 
placed in the windows of almost every house, and in many instances, 
flambeaux of straw and bogwood were borne by the people. In Bun- 
inadden leirge bonfires were blazing, and the little town was brill- 
iantly illuminated. When Mr. Cooke was neariug home . . . 


Norfolk, and settled iu the county Carlow. To this day, 
even, the sirname Cooke is very prevalent in Norfolk — 
more so, than in any other part of England or Ireland. 

It was a member of this family who (see Dr. Moran's 
Monasticon HibernicHm) founded a Franciscan Abbey in 
their demesne, now known as " Oak Park," near Carlow, 
at present the property of Mr. Bruen, M.P., for that 

I have traced this genealogy back to John Cooke, of 
Carlow, who was an of&cer in a Eegiment of Horse, in the 
Army of King James the Second. This John Cooke and 
his brothers took up arms " for faith and sovereign"', and 
so warmly espoused the cause of King James, that, in 
grateful recognition of their devotion to him. His Majesty 
granted to them the style and title for ever of The Cookes 
of the Cavaliers. 

the horses were unyoked, and stalwart arms drew the carriage to the^ 
avenue gate, where a happy and loving tenantry hoisted him on their 
shoulders, and, amidst the ringing cheers of those assembled, carried 
him in triumph to the very centre of the homestead hall. Here an 
old tenant over seventy-five years of age got on a chair and sung a 
"song of welcome. " The following are a few stanzas of that song — 
the " Song of Kilturra", above mentioned : 

" Three cheers for onr Landlord and long may he reign ; 
Mr. John Ormsby Cooke, its his Honour I mean ; 
He is well-liked in the country, in every degree, 
And, for nursing his tenants, no better can be. 

" His Honour he springs from a noble old race ; 
His actions all show that this is the case : 
To the poor he's a friend, so good and so kind, 
His equal in Ireland I'm sure you'll not find. 

'■ He's sprung from the Coopers of riches and fame. 
And the Ormsbyg, too, of good race and name — 
The Phibbses, the Irwines, and the Merediths so old. 
Who were royally sprung and had silver and gold. 

" To conclude, and to finish, and I'U say no more, 
In '98 I was born and my age is seventy-four ; 
My name is John Scully, these lines you'll excuse ; 
1 owe nothing to learning — I took all from the Muse'' 

The reader will see the curious coiucidence which this family gehes- 
logy diaoloses, in the fact that, while Mr. Cooke of Kilturra is the 



The family estates in Carlow and elsewhere confiscated, 
because of their adherence to the cause of King James, 
this. John Cooke, after the battle of Aughrim, settled in 
Gonnaught ; where he and his descendants married into 
some of the most respectable families of that province. 
One of his brothers, named Mathew, went to France as an 
officer in the Irish Koyal Regiment of Footguards ; and, 
most likely, was the person alluded to by O'Callaghan, in 
his "Irish Brigades," pages 332 and 595, as the Mathew 
Cooke who there died in 1740. 

a s died early in life ; and 
Mathew joined the French 

1. John Cooke, of Carlow, 
above mentioned ; living a.d. 
1690. Seeing that after the 
battle of Aughrim the cause 
of King James was lost, and 
wishing to escape the Wil- 
liamite troopers, this John 
Cooke crossed into Mayo 
and there met and married 
Mary Lynch, the daughter 
of Dr. Patrick Lynch, of 
Westport ; by her he had 
issue three sons — 1 Charles, 
2.Thomas,3.Mathew. Thom- 

2. Charles : eldest son of 
•John ; married in 1725 
Sheela mor O'Dowda, daugh- 
ter of The O'Dowda, prince 
of Tireragh, and by her had 
issue two sons — 1. Thomas, 
2. John. This John entered 
into Holy Orders, and be- 
came Parish Priest of Bally- 
mote, CO. SUgo. 

3. Thomas : son of Char- 

representative in the Male line of a, family attainted by King 
"William the Third, he represents through the Napei-s, one of the few 
Sligo families (outside the Coopers of Markree, and LordCollooney,) 
attainted in the Parliament of King James the Second : a curious 
disclosure, and one which shows that much '• Orange and Green" 
are fused in some Irish families. One might well look for patriotism 
in this family; for, one of the Ormsbyswas Lieutenant-Colonel of the 
Sligo "Volunteers in 17S^, whOe the Right Honorable Joshua Cooper, 
of Markree, M.P. for the county Sligo, was one of the Delegates to 
the Irish National Convention of that memorable year ! 

The Cooke's first settled in the county Sligo, on the invitation of 
the Wingfield's of Scurmore (near Enniscrone), who, themselves, 
were sprung from a Carlow family, and who gave the Cookes large 
leaseholds. These leaseholds they afterwards lost, on account of 
their sympathy some years before with the cause of the " Pre- 
tender," and of the "old faith" When deprived of their home-

14. — The " Dalton" Family. 

There is no certain account of the origin of this family, 
other than that which we have by tradition, namely : 
That Sir Waltero DeAliton, a Frenchman, aspiring to gain 
the affections of his king's daughter (which he obtained), 
so incurred the displeasure of her father, that, to avoid 
the fury of an incensed monarch. Sir Waltero, with his 
lady, privately retired into Ireland, which was then in- 
volved in great wars between the ancient natives and their 
invading English enemies ; where, having signalized his 
great valour and good conduct on many occasions on the 
invader's side, he was soon advanced to considerable 
offices and employments, and made governor of the borders 
of Meath, then the limits of the English conquests. In 




that part of the kingdom of Meath now called " West- 
meath" Sir Waltero acquired great estates and possessions, 
which his posterity enjoyed until they were dispossessed 
hy the Usurper Cronawell. This Sir Waltero was the 
ancestor of Dalton. 

Sir Waltero De Aliton, so far as we can find, had but 
one son, who was named Philip De Aliton, from whose 
three sons — 1. Nicholas, 2. Phihp the Younger, and 3. 
John, the families of — 1. Dalton, 2. Daton and Datoon, 
and 3. Delatnn, are respectively descended.

-•Castle De Arcie," his chief seat, situate within thirty 
miles of Paris ; and was the ancestor of De Arcie, modern- 
ized D'Arcy. The Irish O'Dorchaidhe is the origin of 
Darcy and Dorcy ; some of whom have changed the name 
to D'Arcy.

16.— The " Daunt'' Family. 

The various branches of the family of Daunt, now existing 
in Ireland, derive their origin from an ancient race of that 
name, long seated in Gloucestershire ; where the principal 


stem possessed the manor of Owlpen for several centuries. 
Many writers on. heraldry identify the name of " Daunt" 
■with that of Dauntre, which occurs in the " Roll of Battle 
Abbey." Glover and others assign to " Daunt," of Glou- 
cestershire, the arms which Gwillyn assigns to " Dauntre," 
viz. — sable, three beacons with ladders, or, fired gules. In 
a very old MS. in Ulster's ofBce, these arms are also 
appropriated to Daunt of Gloucestershire. 

The first settlement of the " Daunts" in Ireland appears 
to have been Lq the reign of Elizabeth ; when Thomas 
Daunt (second son of Thomas Daunt of Owlpen, by his 
wife, Alice Throckmorton of Tortworth,) became the lessee 
of Tracton Abbey, near Kinsale ; and, in 1595, purchased 
the estate of Gurtigrenane from Sir Warham St. Leger. 
This Thomas became lord of the manor of Owlpen, on the 
death of his elder brother Henry, without issue male, in 
1608. From him descended Mary Daunt, sole daughter 
and heiress of the oldest line. She married Thomas An- 
thony Stoughton, of Kerry ; and died in 1868, being suc- 
ceeded in Owlpen and Gurtygrenane by her son, Thomas 
Anthony Stoughton, of Owlpen (hving in 1877), who 
served as high sheriff of Gloucestershire, in 1873. 

James Daunt, of Tracton Abbey (of which place he was 
joint-lessee with Thomas of Owlpen), was high sheriff of 
the county Cork, in 1627 ; Thomas Daunt, of Gurty- 
grenane, was high sheriff in 1645 ; and Samuel Daunt, of 
KnocknasiUagh, was high sheriff in 1749. 

In Sir Bernard Burke's Landed Gentry, the genealogical 
seniority of the existing lines of " Daunt" is stated, as 
follows : I. The Owlpen line, now merged in the family of 
Stoughton ; 11. That of Fahalea, whose proprietor, Mr. 
Henry Daunt became representative-general on the death 
of the late Mrs. Stoughton ; III. The family of Mrs. George 
Achilles Daunt, of Newborough ; IV. That of Mr. George 
Daunt, of Slieveron ; V. That of the Rev. Achilles Daunt, 
of Tracton Abbey (who, in 1877, is the Very Rev. 
Achilles Daunt, B.D., Dean of Cork) ; VI. That of Mr. 
WillJam Joseph O'Neill Daunt, of Kilcascan Castle, Balli- 
neen, living in. 1877. This Mr. Daunt is the author of 
several popular works, including "A Catechism of the 


History of Ireland", "Ireland and Her Agitators", "Hugh 
Talbot", " The Wife Hunter", " The Gentleman in Debt", 
" Saints and Sinners", etc. 

A scion of the family, Mr. Richard Gumbleton Daunt, 
has been long settled in BrazU. 

17. — The "Delmoee" Family. 

Heebekt De Lamabe, or, as he was called in Irish, 
Erebeirt an Muireach {muireach : Irish, " a sailor or 
mariner"), was considered to be of French extraction. 

He came into Ireland upon the first invasion thereof by 
the English, and, after a time, was made governor of the 
lower borders of Meath, now called " Westmeath," then 
the limits of the English conquests in that country ; where 
he and his posterity obtained great estates and possessions. 
This Herbert De Lamare was the ancestor of Delamere, 
anglicised Delmore ; after him the Irish called his descen- 
dants MacErebeirt (" erebeirt" : Irish, a load or carriage ; 
from the Gaelic "eraidh", apparel, and "beirt," a burden), 
anglicised MacHerbert, and Herbert. 

William De Lamare, son of Herbert, lived in the reign 
of Henry the Third, King of England ; and founded the 
Abbey or Friary of Multifarnham, upon part of his posses- 

John De Lamare (or Delamare), son, it is supposed, of 
the aforesaid William, built the strong castle of Street, in 
the territory of Maghbreacry, in the country of Annaly 
(now the county •' Longford"), which he made his chief 
seat, A.D. 1294 ; and so continued to the chiefs of his 
posterity, until their estates were confiscated by Cromwell 
and his adherents, during the " Commonwealth." In the 
same year (of 1294) this John Delamare joined with 
John Fitzgerald, baron of O'Phaley (now " Offaley"), who 
was afterwards first earl of Kildare, in a great quarrel 
between him and Richard Bourke, the Red earl of Ulster ; 
and, by his assistance, defeated and took the said earl. 


and committed him prisoner in the Castle of Ley, for a 
long tirae. After the year 1298, the said John Delamare 
•was slain in an engagement with his Irish enemies, of 

18. — The "Fay" (op Faybrook and Moyne Hall) Family 

Faye, a Parish in Normandy, gave name to a family which 
is of frequent mention in the Norman Charters. — See Mem. 
Societ. lies Antiq. de la Nonnandie, Vol. VII. 

A branch of the family early settled in England ; for, in 
1156, Ealph De La Faia, or De Fay, obtained a pardon in 
Surrey : implying the possession of Estates there. 

In 1173. — Ralph De Faye was one of the sureties for 
Henry II., in his Convention with Herbert, Earl of Mau- 
viesenne, for the marriage of their children. 

In 1202. — Ealph De La Fay (son of the preceding) 
paid scutage for one and a half fees in Surrey, while, about 
the same time, the King confirmed to Peter De Faya, Bur- 
gess of Eochelle, lands in Bromley, which he held of the 
gift of Ealph De Fay, senior. 

In 1223. — The King received the homage of John, son 
and heir of Ealph De Fay, for one knight's fee in Brom- 
ley, Surrey. 

This John De Fay died, s.p., circa 1241 ; and the estate 
passed to his sister Matilda, wife of Eoger De Clere, and 
to Philippa, wife of Wm. Longspie, in the possession of 
whose descendants it still remains. 

In 1219.— Sir Eichard De Fay, Knight of De Lacy, 
Lord of Meath, was sent by the latter on an Embassy to 
the King. 

(This, the first individual of the family whom we meet 
in Ireland, is considered to be a younger son of Ealph De 
Fay, senior, of Surrey.) 

In 1810. — George Fay was seated in the Pale. 

In 1421. — George Fay was one of four Commissioners 
appointed to hold an enquiry concerning any Treasons, or

Cloyne, and of Maurice who 
was the ancestor of Fitz-

" Baldwin : Other genealogists say that the Baldwins are de- 
scended from Baudwin — bras-de-fer, a nobleman attached to the 
Court of Charles the Bold, King of France, who created the said 
Baudwia (or Baldwin) " earl of Flanders". That Baudwin married 
Judith, daughter of Charles the Bold, and granddaughter of Char- 
lemagne, widow of Ethelwolf, king of England, and stepmother of 
King 4.1fred the Great. 

We can trace back to Henry Baldwin, a Ranger of Woods and 
Forests in Shropshire, who married Elinor, daughter of Sir Edward 
Herbert, of Red Castle, who was the second son of the first Lord 
Pembroke, by Lady Anne, daughter of Lord Paer, of Kendall, and 
sister of Lady Catherine Paer, surviving queen of Henry VIII. king 
of England. That Henry Baldwin had three sons, who settled in 
Ireland in the time of Queen Elizabeth, the eldest of whom was

was High Sheriff of the county 

Cork, in 1777, and left, amongst 
other issue, William, who mar- 
ried Mary, daughter of Franklin 
Kirby, of Bamborough Grange, 
Yorkshire, England. This Wil-

22 — The " Joyce'' family. 

A very curious pedigree of this family is recorded in the 
Oflice of Arms, Dublin. Some genealogists assert that 
Joyce and Joy are of Irish origin, and are early branches 
of the "Mac Sheehy" family; while others assert that 
they are of Anglo-Norman descent, and were originally 
called De Jorse. But all admit that they were an ancient, 
honourable, and nobly descended race ; of tall and manly 
stature ; and were allied to the Welsh and British Princes. 
Thomas De Jorse, who (according to the History of 
Galway, &c.) was the first of the name that came to Ire- 
land, sailed from Wales in the reign of King Edward I., 
immediately after that monarch, a.d. 1282, had defeated 
the Welsh prince Lewyllen, and added Wales to England. 
He arrived with his fleet at Thomond, in Ireland, where 
he married Nora O'Brien, daughter of the then prince of 
that principality. He afterwards put to sea, steered for 
West Connaught, and landed in the barony of Tyrawley, 


in the county of Mayo, wliere the sept had a temporary 
stay, and founded the Abbey of Rosserk, on the banks of 
the river Moy. Thence he re-embarked, and reached lar 
Connacht (or the north-western part of the county Gal way), 
where he established a colony and acquired extensive tracts 
of territory contiguous to Killery Bay, adjacent to the 
county Mayo ; and extending from Cong river to the river 
Glenbrickeen, near Clifdeu, in the county Galway, in 
which some of his posterity now reside. While on his 
voyage to lar Connaught, his wife was delivered of a son, 
whom he named MacMara (or " the son of the sea"), who 
was subsequently called Edmond. This Edmond (Mac 
Mara) Joyce was first married to the daughter of O'Fla- 
herty, prince of lar Counaught, by whom he acquired the 
territory comprising the present Parish of Ballinakill, and 
•other districts ; from him are descended the Joyces of 
" Joyces' Country", called after their name, now forming 
the Barony of Eoss, the parish of Ballinakill, etc., in the 
■county Galway. 

The Joyces were a brave and warlike race, and great 
-commanders of galloglasses. particularly Tiohoid na Cais- 
lein (Toby or Theobald of the Castles), who is No. 11 on 
the subjoined list of the chiefs of the Joyce family. This 
Theobald and the neighbouring chiefs were frequently at 
war. One of his most remarkable battles was with Tio- 
hoid na Luinye (or Toby of the Ships), who is No. 29 on 
" The Bourkes, lords viscount Mayo" pedigree, p. 313 ; 
which was fought in Partry, on the boundary of the 
Bourke's territory and Joyce's country, in which the 
Joyce's were victorious, and Theobald Bourke made pris- 
oner. As the result of that battle, Tioboid na Luinge gave 
the Joyces a part of his territory, extending from the 
battlefield (the original boundary ; and to this day known 
.as Sraith na Luinye, indicating where Tiohoid na Luinge 
was captured) to Owenbrin. The Joyces were frequently 
at war with the O'Flahertys, who, during almost the 
whole of the sixteenth century, strenuously endeavoured 
to regain the territories which Edmond (MacMara) Joyce 
received with the daughter of O'Flaherty, as above men- 
tioned. In those sanguinary battles the bravest and 
dearest kinsmen fell on both sides. 


In 1587 the Clan Joyce, with great valour, opposed 
Bingham, governor of Connaught, and, assisted by other 
tribes of the province defeated him at Caislean na Cailiighe 
(" cailleach" : Irish, an old woman ; Heb. " chelach", ohl 
age), on Lough Mask. 

Of this family are the Joyces of Joyce Grove, county 
Galway ; of Oxfojd, near Doonamoona, in Mayo ; of Wood- 
quay, in the town of Galway ; and of Merview, near the 
town. Other collateral branches of the family settled in 
Leinster and Munster — a descendant of one of whom was 
the Irish Judge, Chief Baron Joy.* The Joyces of Joyces' 
Country held their possessions until the middle of the 
seventeenth century, up to the Cromwellian confiscation ; 
but some of the family are still in possession of extensive 

The O'Hallorans, MacConroys, etc., possessed, before 
the Joyces, the territory known as " Joyces' Country", 
which was anciently called Hy-Orbsm. 

Names of the Chiefs of the Clan Joyce. 

1. Thomas De Jorse ; died, 
1317. This Thomas had a 
brother named Walter, who 

Archbishop of Armagh, from 
1306 to 1311, when he re- 
signed and was succeeded 

was Cardinal of Sabina, and j by his brother Eolaad. 

* Joy : Writing to the author, a friend of this family in Pennsyl- 
vania, United States, America, says that the late Chief Baron Joy 
was a native of Belfast ; that all the members of his family have 
held a prominent place in that town for many generations; that they 
are descendants of a French Huguenot who settled in Ireland, being 
obliged to leave France in consequence of religious intolerance ; that 
it was the "Joy " family who introduced the manufacture of paper 
in Belfast ; and that the establishment of The Belfast News Letter — 
the oldest provincial Newspaper except one in Ireland — is to be 
traced to their intelligence aud energy. 

Other eminent authorities say that DeJorse, Joes, Jorsey, Jose, 
Josse, Joy, Joyes, Joyce, Yoe, Yoen are all different forms of sirname 
for the one family named in Irish Seoaigh, whom MacFirbis mentions- 
as of " The Welshmen of Ireland" ; and others derive Joy, Joyce, 
etc., from O'Sithaigh, anglicised Sheehy and MacSheehy (see the 
" MacSheehy" pedigree.)

the castles and strongholds he had built, viz. . Doon Castle, near 
Clifden ; Eenvyle Castle, which commands the entrance to Killery 
Bay (and which stronghold was once unsuccessfully attacked by the 
famous Grace O'Malley, the mother of Tioboid na Luinge, a,hoye 
alluded to) ; and Castle Kirk, on an island of Lough Corrib, com- 
manding the entrance to his territory in that direction. He also 
built a stronghold near Clonbur, on the eastern boundary of his 
territory, which in Irish was called Duthaigh Sheoaigh, and angli- 
cised "Joyces' Country" ; and, it is believed, the Abbey of Eoas 
Hill, adjacent thereto. He ruled from 1570 to 1600.

23.— The "Lacy" Family. 

The ancient Irish antiquaries say that Charlemagne (or 
the Emperor Charles the Great) was the ancestor of Laci/; 
from him down to Sir Hugo (or Hugh) De Lacy (to whom

25. The " Nangle" Family. 

Gilbert De Angulo, ancestor of this family (which has 
been modernized Nagle), came as a commander into Ire- 
land, A.D. 1172, upon the English invasion of that kingdom 
by King Henry the Second ; and, in the year 1177, he 
and his brother Jordan De Angulo were witnesses to the 
charter given by King John, of the lands of Hovede (now 
" Howth") unto Almeric De Sancto Laurentio, ancestor of 
St. Lawrence*, earls of Howth. In the year 1195, Sir Hugo 
De Lacy granted to the said Gilbert aU the lands called 
" Maghery-Gallen" ; and to Gilbert's son, Jocelin, he gave 
Navan and the lands of Ardbraccan. This Jocelin was 
the first baron of Navan ; he had a brother named Oastelo. 

Jocelin De Angulo, first baron of Navan, had two sons, 
the elder of whom was ancestor of ISianijle, in Leinster and 
Munster ; the second son (who was Justiciary of Ireland, 
A.D. 1195), surnamed " Peter Peppard" was the ancestor 
of Peppard. It was this Peter's son, or grandson, named 
Ralph Peppard, who founded St. Mary's Abbey, in Ather- 
dee (now " Ardee"), in the reign of King Edward the 

Costelo, the second son of GUbert De Angulo, was the 
ancestor of Costello : after him the barony of " Costello", 
in the county Mayo, was so called. This Costelo had two 
sons — 1. Costelo oge ; 2. Meyler fionn (or Meyler the 
Fair), who was the ancestor of MacJordan. 

26. — The Stem op the " Nugent" Family. 

Some say that this family is descended from the ancient 

* 8t. Lawrence: Ho\rt}i gives title of "Earl" to this family ; which 
was called " St. Lawrence," from a victory gained by them over the 
Irish, on St. Lawrence's Day, a.d. 1371. The name of the family wa» 
originally Tristram. 


dukes of Lorraine ; and tliat Sir Gilbert De Nogent, with 
his brother Eichard De Capello and two other gentlemen 
of their name, came into Ireland with Sir Hugh De Lacy, 
who gave the said Gilbert one of his daughters in marriage, 
and, as a marriage portion with her, the barony of "Delvin" 
— as in the following Deed : " De, omnes terras et tenementa 
qua quondam O^Finelanhabuit,filio et consanguineo meo Gil- 
berto De Nogent." The said Sir Gilbert having died without 
issue, left the estates to his brother Eichard De Capello, 
lord justice of Ireland, whose daughter and only heir 
being married to baron Jones, he became, in her right, 
baron of Delvin ; which title continued in the family for 
four generations, until by the failure of heirs male, and 
the marriage of Catherine, daughter and sole heir of the 
last haron Jones, to William Nogent, of Braclon, descended 
from the said Gilbert, or from one of his kinsmen, who 
came with him to Ireland, the estate and honour returned 
to the Nogent family. This WilUam Nogent was the first 
who assumed the name Nugent. 

According to O'Dugan, this William was the ancestor of 
Nugent, and fifth in descent from Conor O'Conor, king of 
Meath, who was a brother of Cathal (or Charles) craobh- 
dearg, the fifty-first Christian king of Connaught, and (see 
the first series) No. 112 on the "O'Conor (Conaught) " 
pedigree. This Conor O'Conor was also a younger brother 
of Eoderick O'Conor, the 183rd and last monarch of Ire- 
land, who died a.d. 1198.

of Westmeath, and of tbe 
branches descended from

of Delvin ; living a.d. 1709. 

27. — The " Petit" Family. 

William Le Petito (a quo Petit) came into Ireland with 
Sir Hugh De Lacy. All that is recorded of William Le 
Petito is, that the said Sir Hugo De Lacy did, by charter, 
grant unto him JIatheritJdrnan, etc. (now called the barony 
of " Magherydernan", in the county Westmeath), except 
the Logh and town of Dysart ; and that they were an- 
ciently styled " barons of Molingare" 
William Le Petito, in 1185, gave a 
Ii-ish of Meath ; in 1190 or 1191 he 
governor of L-eland.

4. John : his son. 

5. Simon : his son. 

6. Gerrott : his son. 

7. Simon (2) : his son. 

8. Thomas : his son. 

9. Gerrott Petit : his son ; 
living A.D. 1657. 

28. — The "Power" Family. 
Some of the Irish genealogists derive the origin of this 
family from the O'Briens, kings of Thomond. Eobert Le 
Poer ("por," gen. " poir " : Irish, seed, race, a clan), whose 
ancestor it is said came into England with William the 
Conqueror, was the first of this family that, a.d. 1172, 
«ame into Ireland with King Henry the Second, who, by 


charter, granted unto the said Robert, by the name of 
Eobert Puber, the city of Waterford, with " the whole pro- 
vince thereabouts" ; and made him marshal of Ireland, 
In the year 1179, this Eobert Le Poer was joined in com- 
mission with Sir Hugo De Lacy, as lords justices of 
Ireland. In the year 1177, John De Courcy, with the aid 
of Roger Poer (who was Ukely the brother or one of the 
three sons of the said Eobert), conquered Ulidia. We read 
that this Roger (or Sir Roger) Le Poer was the friend and 
companion in arms of Sir John De Courcy and Sir Ar- 
moric St, Lawrence, and was the standard-bearer and 
marshal of Ireland ; of him Giraldus Gambrensis writes : 
" It might be said, without offence, there was not one man 
who did more valiant acts than Roger Le Poer, who, al- 
though he was a young man and beardless, yet showed 
himself a lusty, valiant, and courageous gentleman ; and 
who grew into such good credit that he had the govern- 
ment of the country about Leighlin, as also in Ossory 
where he was traitorously killed." And Gambrensis says 
that Sir Roger Le Poer was " the youngest, bravest, and 
handsomest of all the Anglo-Norman knights. This Sir 
Roger married a niece of Sir Armoric St. Lawrence (an- 
cestor of the earls of Howth), and by her had a son, John 
Le Poer, living a.d. 1197 ; whose grandson. Sir Eustace, 
sat in parliament in 1295. He was succeeded by lord 
Arnold Le Poer, who slew Sir John Boneville in single 
combat ; and was one of the commanders in the Army of 
King Edward the First of England, against Edward Bruce, 
in Ireland, in 1315. Lord Arnold Le Poer was succeeded 
by lord Robert Le Poer, seneschal of the county Wexford, 
and treasurer of Ireland. To him succeeded Matthew ; 
after him, John ; and after him, Richard, whose son 
Nicholas was summoned to Parliament by Writ, dated 
22nd November, 1375, and "three times afterwards." Of 
those Writs, Lodge says: "These are the most ancient 
Writs of Summons to Parliament, that remain on record 
in the Rolls Office of Ireland. Richard, lord Le Poer, 
grandson of the said Nicholas, married Catherine, second 
daughter of Pierce Butler, eighth earl of Ormond (and 
hence, probably, the Christian name Piers, Pierse, or 
Pierce, came into the " Power " family). 


In 1673, Eiohard, lord Le Poer. was created " visconnt 
of Decies" (or viscount De Decies) and " earl of Tyrone";* 
whose grandson had an only daughter, the lady Catherine 
Le Poer, who married Su- Marcus Beresford, baronet, and 
carried into the "Beresford" family (now represented by the 
marquis of Waterford) the ancient barony by ' ' Writ of 
Summons" of the lords Le Poer. It may be well to ob- 
serve that, among the modern nobility of Ireland, no 
" barony" is so much prized (because of its antiquity) as 
that of Writ of Summons to Parliament. 

So early as a.d. 1368, the Le Poeis (or Powers) were 
very numerous in the county Waterford, and in possession 
of a very large portion of the county called "Powers' 
Country " ; and, besides the family of Curraghmore (the 
seat of the marquis of Waterford), there were those of the 
baron of Donisle, and the House of Kilmeaden — both of 
which were destroyed by Oliver Cromwell, during his 
" Protectorate." 

* Earl of Tyrone : The following extract from Lodge's Peerage 
of tlie "Earldom of Tyrone" may be of interest to members of the 
Power family ■ " John, lord Le Poer, being only eight years and a 
half old at his grandfather's death, became the ward of King James 
the First, who, 7th December, 1606, granted his wardship to hia 
mother ; Ijut 30th March, 1629, he had a special livery of his estate 
(he became a lunatic before the rebellion of 1641), and marrying 
Ruth, daughter and heir of Robert Pypho, of St. Mary's Abbey, 
Esq., had five sons and four daughters : viz., 1. Richard, created 
earl of Tyrone ; 2. Pierse, of KOlowan, county Waterford, who 
married Honora, daughter of John, the second lord Brittas (having 
issue Richard, who died there in February, 1635, leaving by Ellen, 
daughter of WiUiam Butler, of Balhboe, county Tipperary, gent., 
1. John, his heir, which John married EUen, daughter of Daniel 
Magrath, of Mountaincastle, in the county Waterford ; Pierce, 
whose daughter Judith was married to Mr. Ducket ; James, Ellen, 
and Anne, and foanded the family at Rathcormac, in the county 
Waterford) ; 3, Robert ; 4. John, who died unmarried in Dublin ; 
5. David, who died there, 17th August, 1661, and was buried at St. 
Michan's ; 1. Ellen, married to Thomas Walsh, of Piltown, sen., 
Esq. ; 2. Catherine, married to John Fitzgerald, of Dromana, Esq. 
(whose only daughter, Catherine, was mother of John, late earl 
Grandison) ; 3. Margaret ; and 4. Mary." 

In Notes at foot of the foregoing, Lodge gives the following refe- 
rences : M,S. Pedig. Trin. Coll., 1676 ; and again MS. Pedig. Trin. 
Coll. Plea and Ans. Villiers to Poer, 14th November, 1676. 




Of the Le Poer family (which has existed in the county 
Waterford for the last seven centuries) there have been 
many branches and offshoots ; one or two of which I am 
able to trace down to the present time. I. The following 
is one of them, as far as I can trace it : 

7. John (3) : his son ; had 
two brothers ; died (before 
his father) in 1693. 

8. David Power : his son ; 
Uving in 1709 ; had 


1. John. Power, of Kil- 

2. Nicholas : his son. 

3. Piers : his son. 

I. Sir William : his son. 

5. John (2) : his son. 

6. David: his son; died 
A.D. 169G. 

II. Pierce Power, =■' by his second wife, Grace, daughter 
of Sir T. Osborne, was the ancestor of the following 
branches of the Power family : 

1. Pierce Power ; had 
three younger brothers — 1. 
Pkichard, of Carrigaline, 
county Cork ; 2. Breine ; 
3. Eobert. 

2. Pierce (2) : son of said 
Pierce ; had six younger 
brothers — 1. Milo, 2. Eich- 
ard, 3. David, 4. John, 5. 
Thomas, and 6. Anthony.

who died s.p. 

4. Pierce, of Ballyhane, 
near Whitechurch, county 
Waterford : son of Nicholas ; 
had three sisters — 1. Pen- 

elope, 2. Eliza, 3. Alicia ; 
married, in 1762, Elizabeth, 
daughter of Valentine Brown- 
ing, son of Major Browning 
who came to Ireland with 
Cromwell. The male issue 
of that Major Browning hav- 
ing failed, the said EUzabeth 
Browning became the heir- 
ess of Affane, near Cappo- 
quin ; and thus the Affane 
property came into the poss- 
ession of the said Pierce 
Power, who died in 1815. 

5. Eev. William Power : 
his fifth son ; had four bro- 
thers — 1. Samuelt, 2. Nich- 

* Pierce Poioer •- This Pierce was twice married : by his first mar- 
riage he had a son named Roger. 

+ Samuel : This Samuel Power was married to Anne, daughter 
and co-heir of Sir G. Browne, by whom he had three sons and three 
daughters : the sons were— 1. George-Beresford, married to Elizabeth 
Beeves, by whom he had one son (Samuel) and one daughter (Dor- 
othea-Carttor) ; 2. Samuel ; 3. Eev. Henry. The daughters were 
— 1. Anna, married to D. Blake, Esq. ; 2. Elizabeth ; 3. Georgina. 




olas (who died young, s.ji.), 
3. John,* 4. Pierce ; and 
three sisters — Alicia, mar- 
ried to John Drew, Esq., of 
Frogmore, county Cork, 2. 
Catherine, married to Sir 
Christopher Musgrave, bart., 
of Tourin, county Waterford, 
3. Jane, married to Eev. 
George Miles. This William 
succeeded to Affane, in 1815, 
married, in 1807, Mary Ara- 
minta, daughter of the Eev. 
Thomas Sandiford ; and died 
in 1825, leaving issue— 1. 
Samuel Browning, 2. Ed- 
ward, 3. Eev. Thomas. 

6. Samuel Browning Pow- 
er : eldest son of William ; 
succeeded to Affane in 1825; 
was a J.P. for county Wat- 

erford ; in 1831 married 
Mary, daughter of Thomas 
Woodward, Esq., of the For- 
est of Dean, Gloucestershire, 
died in 1867, leaving issue 
three sons and three daugh- 
ters : the sons were — 1. 
WUliam, 2. Eichard-Charles, 
8. Frederick- Edward ; the 
daughters were — I.Frances- 
Susanna, 2. Mary-Ara- 
minta, 3. Susanna Louisa. 

7. Captain William Power, 
of Affanef, eldest son of 
Samuel-Browning ; in 1869 
married Catherine Mary, 
only surviving child of 
Captain Jervois, E.N., of 
Winifred Dale, Bath ; living 
in 1878. 

29. — The Purckll Family. 

James, brother of Eichard ruadh [roe] who is No. 2 on the 
" Tyrrell " pedigree, was the ancestor of Purcell. 

* John : This John was twice married : first to Anna Ross, by 
whom he had three c-.hildren — 1. Pierce, 2. Elizabeth, married to W. 
L. OgUby, 3. Mary, married to J. Farrell ; his second marriage was 
to Jane Bennett, by whom he had five children — 1. Samuel, married 
to Rebecca Danver, 2. Philip, 3. John, 4. Philip, 5. Anna-Ross. 
The children of this Samuel Power and his wife Rebecca Danver, 
•Hrere — 1. John- Danver, 2. Florence- Danver, 3. Frederick-Danver, 4. 
Arthur-Danver, 5. LiUan-Danver, 6. Philip-Danver, 7. Norman- 
Dauver, 8. Amold-Danver. 

t Affane : It is recorded that the first marquis of Waterford, in 
his frequent visits to Affane, in the time of Pierce Power, of Bally- 
hane. No. 4 on this pedigree, who died in 1815, used to call him his 
kinnman, and say— " Well, Pierce, if the Beresfords ever fail, you and 
yours will be the next to them." 

It is most likely that his lordship had a copious pedigree of the 
" Power" family, containing its various branches and collaterals ; 
and it may fairly be assumed that such a pedigree .still exists at the 
Marquis of Waterford's seat at Curraghmore.

32.— The " Tuitb" Family. 

EicHABD Le Tuite Came into Ireland with King Henry 
the Second, a.d. 1172 ; where he attained large possessions 
in that part of the country now called Westmeath, which 
after him his posterity possessed and enjoyed up to the 
Cromwellian confiscations ; but, upon the restoration of 
King Charles the Second, a portion of the confiscated 
estates was restored to the family, and possessed, at the 
time of the Williamite confiscations, by Sir Joseph Tuite, 
of Sonnagh (or Tonnagh), baronet. 

In the year 1199, Eichard Le Tuite built the strong castle 
of Granard, in " O'Farrell's Country", called Annaly, 
now the county Longford ; and, in 1210, built the monas- 
tery of Granard, which he endowed with large possessions. 
He soon after died at Athlone by the fall of a tower.

John Bermingham, a.d. 
1319, defeated and slew at

two younger brothers — 1. 
Thomas, 2. Jeoffrey. 
11. Sir Joseph Tuite, of 

Sonnagh : son of Richard ; 
living in 1657. 

33. — The " Tyrrell" Family. 

Some say that the Sir Hugh TirrelP, who a.d. 1184, came 
into Ireland with Philip, of "Worcester, lord justice, was 
the ancestor of Tyrrell, and was identical with the Sir 
Hugh Tirrell who was called the " Grascian Knight." 
This Sir Hugh had two sons — 1. Eichardruadh [roe] , who 
was ancestor of the Tyrrell family who were hereditary 
sheriffs and sometimes governors of the lower borders of 
Meath, now callei " Westmeath", where they acquired 
the ancient territory of Fertulagh, which they enjoyed 
until confiscated by Cromwell ; and 2. James, who was the 
ancestor of Purcell. We read that, in 1316, a lord Hugh 
Tirrell, governor of Castleknock, was taken by the 
" Scotts."

9. Sir John : his son. 

10. James (2) : his son. 

11. Jerratt Tyrrell; his 
son ; living a.d. 1657. 

34. — The " Vance" Family, 
This name was at one time De Yan.t, was modernized 

* Sir Hugh Tirrell : This name " Tirrell " seems to be derived from 
the Irish tirrtil ("tir", gen. "tire": Irish, a country ; " reil", a star 
and. rightful), which may signify "the star of the country", or, taken 
along with " Sir Hugh", may mean "the rightful of the country." 
The latter meaning would imply that Sir Hugh TirreU, like many 
others who came to Ireland with the English invaders, was of Trish 




Va)is*, and more lately rendered Vance. In Scottish 
heraldry it is recorded that few of the ancient names of 
Scotland can trace their origin to a more distinguished 
foreign source. I can trace the genealogy down from 
Joseph Vans, of Wigton, in Cumberland, England ; who 
■was born about a.d. 1590. 

1. Joseph Vans, of Wigton, 
born about 1590. 

2. George : his son ; bap- 
tized at Wigton, f 21 June, 
1640 ; married his cousin 
Grace Vans, in Scotland, 
about the year 1660, and 
settled in Terryscollip (or 
DerryscoUip),near Benburb, 
oounty Tyrone, about a.d. 
1676. This George lived to 
be 119 years old; and, 
strange to say, cut a third 
row of teeth at 90 years of 
age ; he died in 1758. He 
left two sons — 1. WiUiam 
Vance, of TerryscolUp, who 
died in 1774, leaving no 
male issue, but had one 
daughter named Grace who 
married a Mr. Holmes, and 
whose surviving male des- 
cendants still live (in the 
name of Holmes in the neigh- 
bourhood of Benburb ; 2. 
John Vance, of Drumhirk, 

county Tyrone, who died in 

3. John Vance : second 
son of George Vans ; married 
Eliza, daughter of Andrew 
Oliver, of Latakeel, near 
Cookstown : she lived to be 
100 years of age ; he died 
29th October 1759, aged 82 
years ; both he and his wife 
were buried at Castlecaul- 

4. John Vance, of Drum- 
hirk : his son ; married Jane, 
daughter of John Young, 
Esq., of Annahild, county 
Tyrone ; died 29 April, 
1793, leaving eleven chil- 
dren, three of whom died 
young. This John had a 
brother named Oliver, who 
had four children, three of 
whose names are recorded — ■ 
1. Jane, who was married to 
a Mr. Graham ; 2. Grace, to 
a Mr. Walker ; 3. Anne, to 

* Vans : Some genealogists derive this sirname from the Gaelic 
Uan, gen. Uain, " a lamb" ; Gr. accusative oin. If this derivation 
be correct, the Irish O'Uain would be equivalent to the English 
Lamb and the French De Vans. 

+ Wigton : In the Register of Baptisms solemnized in the parish 
■of Wigton, in the county of Cumberland, England, a.d. 1640, the 
following entry occurs : 

" June. George the sonne of Joseph Vans baptiz. 21st." 




a Mr. Barrett, all of whom 
died without issue surviving, 
except Mrs. Barrett, who 
has left issue. 

5. Andrew Vance, of Rut- 
land-square, Dublin : the 
eighth son of John ; born in 
1773 ; married Maria-Mary, 
daughter of James Falls, Esq. , 
Aughnaoloy ; died in 1849, 
leaving eight children. Of 
the brothers and sisters of 
this Andrew, who left issue, 
I have ascertained the names 
of only — 1. Mary ; 2. George, 
an elder brother ; 3. James, 
a younger brother, but some 
of the other children also 
have left issue. This (1) 
Mary (who was born in 1768, 
and died in 1847) married a 
CaptainDonaldson,by whom 
she had two sons and four 
daughters, all of whom died 
without issue, except Maria, 
who married a Mr. Dowse, 
and died in 1825, leaving 
issue the Eight Honble. 
Eichard Dowse, (living in 
1878), who has four child- 
ren — 1. Mary-Catherine, 2. 
Charlotte-Anne, 3. Sophia- 
Elizabeth, 4.Eickard-Dowse 
■ — all living in 1877. George 
Vance (2) here mentioned, 
as an elder brother of An- 
drew, was an eminent sur- 
geon in London ; he was born 
in 1769 ; married Elizabeth- 

Bradridge, (who died in Dec, 
1876, aged 86 years), only 
daughter of John Sheppard, 
Esq., of Coombe, Fishaere, 
Morton Abbott, Devonshire ; 
and, in 1837, was killed by 
a lunatic whom he was pro- 
fessionally attending. This 
George had ten children, 
eight of whom died without 
issue : the two surviving 
children were — 1 . Lieu- 
tenant-Col. H. P.Vance, 38th 
Eegiment ; Elizabeth-Louisa 
Vance, both living in Lon- 
don, in 1877. James (3) a 
younger brother of the said 
Andrew Vance, was born in 
1775 ; was an officer in the 
57th Eegiment ; and, un- 
married, was, in 1811, killed 
in a duel by a brother officer, 
at Newry. 

6. John Vance : son of 
Andrew ; was M.P. for 
Dublin, and, afterwards, for 
Armagh; died in 1875, leav- 
ing only two daughters — 1. 
Adelaide-Sidney Vance, 

married to Eichard Francis 
Keane," eldest son of Sir 
John Keane, Bart., of Cap- 
poquin House, Cappoquin, 
county Waterford; 2. Flor- 
ence, who died unmarried, 
in 1877. This John Vance 
had four brothers and three 
sisters : the brothers were —

Dublin, the third son of 
Andrew Vance, above men- 
tioned ; married to Alice, 
daughter of Alfred Harding, 
Esq., of Salisbury, England, 
by whom he had (living in 
1877) two sons — 1. Alger- 
non-Eustace-Henry ; 2. 
Claude-Edward. This Eus- 
tace-John Vance had seven 
sisters — 1. Emily, married 
to Fielding Scovell, of Eye-

35. — The " Whyte" Family. 

EicHAED De Pitchb, who is mentioned by Giraldus Cam- 
brensis as having come into Ireland with Strongbow aLd. 
1170, is the first member of the Whyte or White family 
whose name I have seen recorded.

In the early ages the Irish people held in great veneration some of 
the BELLS used by the saints in ancient times ; and preserved them 
for many ages, some of them even to the present day : amongst 
other purposes, for administering solemn oaths and adjurations ; and 
to swear falsely on them was considered the greatest crime and pro- 


The chief accounts of ancient Irish literature are given in Ware's 
Works, by Walter Harris ; in bishop Nicholson's " Irish Historical 
Library" ; in Doctor O'Connor's Berum Hibernicarum Scriptores Vet., 
and in his Catalogue of the Irish Manuscripts, in the Duke of Buck- 
ingham's library at Stowe ; in O'RieUy's Irish Writers ; the Works of 
Ussher, and in Lanigan's and Brennan'a Ecclesiastical Histories; 
some accounts of distinguished Irish writers are also given in various 
Biographical Dictionaries. There are still existing vast collections 
of ancient and valuable Irish MSS., in various libraries in Ireland : 
as those of Trinity College, Dublin, and of the Royal Irish Aca- 
demy ; also in many private libraries, particularly in that of the 
late Sir William Betham (Ulster King of Arms). In various libra- 
ries in England there are great collections of Irish MSS. : as in 
those of the Bodleian Library, at Oxford ; of the British Museum, 
and of Lambeth, in London ; and in the library of the Duke of 
Buckingham, at Stowe, there is an immense and valuable col- 
lection. In the libraries on the Continent there are also collections 
of Irish MSS. particularly at Rome, Paris, and Louvaiu, and in the 
libraries of Spain and Portugal ; and it is said that there were Irish 
MSS. in the Royal Library at Copenhagen, which were carried off 
by the Danes from Ireland, in the tenth and eleventh centuries. A 
vast number of Irish MSS. were destroyed, particularly during the 
wars in Ireland by Queen Elizabeth and Cromwell. Webb, in hia 
Analysis of the Antiquities of Irelamd, saya — " It was, 'till the time 
of King James I., the object of Government to discover and destroy 
all remains of the literatur*^ of the Irish ; in order the more fully to 
eradicate from their minds every traoa of their ancient indepen- 
dence."* (See page 6, of the Preface.)

In the Pagan times, many works of note are recorded, and, 
according to Charles O'Connor, it is stated by Duald Mac Firbis, the 
learned antiquary of Leacan, that St. Patrick burned no less than 
one hundred and eighty volumes of the Books of the Druids at Tara. 
As Tara was in the early ages the seat of the Irish mona,rchy, there 
were many of the chief Bards consequently connected with Meath ; 
and an account of various eminent Bards who flourished in Meath 
and Ulster in the Pagan times is given in O'Rielly's " Irish Writers." 
The most celebrated of these were Adhna, Athairne, Forchern, 
Ferceirtne, and Neide — all of whom flourished about the beginning 
of the Christian Era, at the court of Emania, under Concobhar Mac- 
Neasa, (Conor MacNessa), the celebrated king of Ulster. Oisin (or 
Ossian), in the third century, was one of the most celebrated of the 
Irish Bards, and many poems attributed to him are still extant ; 
some of the Ossiauic poems have been translated, but many remain 
in Irish manuscript, and it is to be observed that they are very 
diflferent from Ossian's Poems published by MacPherson, who 
claimed the Irish Bard as a native of Scotland ; but MacPhersou's 
Ossianic Poems, though containing much poetical beauty, are chiefly 
fictions of his own. 


The English soldiers who came over with Strongbow, Hervey De 
Monte Marisco, and others, in the reign of Henry II., as allies of 
Uermod MacMurrogh, king of Leinster, got possession of the baronies 
of Forth and Bargie, where their descendants remain to this day, 
nnmixed with the natives, and speak their ancient language — a 
dialect of the Anglo-Saxon ; of which specimens are given in 
Valiancy, and in Eraser's " Survey of Wexford." 


Accounts of the chief bards, from the earliest ages, are to be found 
in O'Rielly's " Irish Writers" ; and throughout the "Annals of the 
Four Masters", the names of a great number of eminent Bards, his- 
torians, and Brehons have been recorded. The following were the 
chief Bardic famihes in Ireland, and many of them were eminent 
historians : — The O'Clerys of Donegal, the principal authors of the 
" Annals of the Four Masters", were hereditary Bards and histo- 
rians to the O'Donnells. The Mac Wards were also distinguished 
Bards and historians in Donegal and Tyrone, to the O'Donnells and 
O'Neills. The MacConmidhes and O'Gnives were Bards to the 
O'Neills, princes of Tyrone and lords of Clanuaboy. The O'Hoseys 
were Bards to the Maguires of Fermanagh, and the MacMahons of 


Monaghan. The O'Donnellys were poets in Tyrone and Monaghan 
The O'Dalys, O'MulIigans, and O'Farrellys of Cavan, were Bards 
and historians to the O'Riellys. The O'Cuirneens (or Currans) were 
Bards and historiographers of Brefney, under the O'Bourkea. The 
O'Mulconrys were the hereditary Bards and historians to the 
O'Conors, kings of Connaught. The MacFirbises were famous Bards 
and historians in North Oonnaught. The O'Duigenans, of Kilronan, 
were Bards and historians to the MacDermotts of Roscommon, and 
MacDonoghs of Sligo. The O'Uugans were Bards and historians to 
the O'Kellys of Galway and llosoommon. The O'Dalys were cele- 
brated Bardic families in Connaught, Meath, Leinster and Munster, 
The O'Higgins and O'Coffeys were eminent Bards in Westmeath and 
in Connaught. The O'Durms, O'Dalys, and MacKeoghs, were the 
chief Bards and historians under the MacMurroghs, kings of Lein- 
ster, and to various princes and chiefs in that province. The Mac 
Craiths, O'Dalys, O'Dinneens, and O'Keeflfe's were chief poets in 
Desmond, to the MacCarthys, O'Donoghoes, O'Sullivans, and other 
great families ; and to the Fitzgeralds, earls of Desmond. The Mac 
Craiths, MacBruodins, MacCurtins, and MacGowans were the Bards 
and historians of Thomond, to the O'Briens, Macnamaras, Mao 
Mahons, O'Loghlins, and other great families of Clare and Limerick. 

The Irish, in former ages, were the most famous harpers in Europe ; 
and continued eminent in the art even down to modern times. Tor- 
logh O'Carolan, the last and greatest of the Irish Bards, a celebrated, 
harper and composer, died a.d. 1738, in the 68th year of his age, 
at Alderford, in the county Roscommon — the residence of his great 
patron ilacDermott Roe ; and was buried in the old church of Kil- 
ronan. There were many other eminent Bards, harpers, and musical 
composers in Ireland, in the ISth century — as Cormao Comman, 
Thomas O'ConneUan, and his brother 'William, Roger and Echlin 
O'Kane, Cahir MacCabe, Miles O'Rielly, Charles Fanning, Edward 
MacDermottRoe, Hugh Higgin, Patrick Kerr, Patrick Moyne, Arthur 
O'Neill, and others, aU in Ulster and Connaught. In Meath and 
Leinster, O'CarroU, Cruise, Murphy, and Empson were distinguished 
harpers ; and Shane clarach MacDonneU, in Munster, was an emi- 
nent Bard. Interesting accounts of the Irish minstrels and Bards 
are given in the works of Walker, Beauford, Miss Brooke, Ledwich, 
Bunting, Hardiman, etc. 

Tacitus, in his Oermania, gives an interesting account of the Bards 
of the German nations, and says that by the recital of their battle- 
songs (which be calls "Baritus"; from the old German baren, to 
cry,") they greatly excited the valour of their warriors — the songs 
being recited with furious vociferation, and a wild chorus, inter- 
rupted at intervals by the application of their bucklers to their 
mouths, which made the sound burst out with redoubled force. The 
Bards of the Scandinavians, called Skalds, were highly celebrated 
amongst the northern nations, Danes, Swedes, and Norwegians ; 
they were very numerous, and many of their compositions still 
remain, such as war-songs, etc., containing bold, vivid, and admi- 
rable descriptions of warriors and battles ; they were highly hon- 


cured, and it is stated that the renowned hero, Harold Harloger. 
kin§ of Norway, in the tenth century, placed the Bards at the ban- 
quet above all the officers of his court. The Skalds always accom- 
panied the kings and chiefs on their expeditions, to compose and 
recite their war songs, and animate the champions in battle ; for 
the poems they composed in honour of kings and heroes they re- 
ceived rich rewards of splendid dresses, gold and silver ornaments, 
weapons, etc. In Turner's " Anglo-Saxons", an account is given of 
a famous Skald of the Danes, in England, named Gun/auger, who 
composed a poem on King Ethelred, for which he received a present 
of a gold ring weighing seven ounces ; and the same bard having 
gone to Ireland, sang his compositions for one of the kings there, 
who offered him a present of two ships, but his treasurer told him 
that the rewards always given to poets were gold rings, swords, 
clothes, etc., which were then presented to him ; he next went to 
the Orkney Islands, where he got from one of the larls a present of 
a silver axe. Several of the kings and chieftains of Denmark and 
Norway were themselves Skalds, and composed war-songs, etc. The 
Skalds were mostly natives of Iceland, and from the seventh to the 
twelfth century, not less than two hundred of them, eminent in 
their art, are recorded. These Bards were, as in other nations in 
the early ages, the annahsts of these countries ; and their prose his- 
torical compositions were called Saga, which signifies " stories." 

Amongst the Gauls the Bards were highly honoured; and accounts 
of them are given by Diodorus Siculus, and Strabo, who designate 
them Bardoi, in the Greek. The Bards were highly celebrated 
amongst the ancient Britons, particularly in Wales; and in the works- 
of Warton, Gray, Jones, Pennant, Evans, Owen, Davies, etc., and 
in Turner's " Anglo-Saxons", copious accounts are given of the great 
Cambrian Bards, Aneurin, Taliessin, Myrgin, Meigant, Modred, 
Golyzon, Llywarch, Llewellyn, Hoel, etc., who sang the praises of 
the renowned Arthur, king of Britain, and other heroes, as Ossian, 
the Irish Orpheus, did the mighty deeds and fame of the Fenian 
warriors of Ireland, at an earlier time. The Irish Bards and Brehons- 
assisted at the inauguration of kings and princes, and had some of 
the highest seats appropriated to them at the banquet. The Bards- 
attended on battle-fields, recited their war-songs, and animated the- 
champions to the contest ; and they recorded the heroic action* - 
of the warriors who fell in the conflict. In Sir John Davis's 
account of Fermanagh, in the reign of King James the First, 
he says the lands of that county were made into three great divisions : 
one part being the Mensal land of Maguire, another the Termona or 
church lands, and the third division belonged to the chroniclers, 
rhymers, and gaUoglasses. The O'Clerys, who were hereditary 
historians and Bards to the O'DoimeUs, princes of Tirconnell, had 
extensive lands ; and the rains of their castle stiU remain at Kil- 
barron, near JBallyshannon, in the county Donegal, on the shore of 
the Atlantic. 

The name OUamh-re-Dan was applied to designate a poet or pro- 
fessor of poetry, as the word Dan signifies "a poem" ; the ternt 


Ollamh-re-Seanchas was applied to the chroniclers, and historians — 
the word seanchas signifying a history or genealogy. The term sean- 
chuidhe (derived from sean, " old") was also applied to historians, 
antiquaries, and genealogists : henee the name was anglicised " Seua- 
chies"; .fife (in the plural Filidhe), anglicised "Filea" and 
" Fileas", was also a name applied to poets or Bards. The Barda 
became a numerou.s body in Ireland. In the latter end of the sixth 
century, a remarkable contention arose between the Bards and the 
Irish monarch Aodh (son of Ainmireaoh, or Anmire, the 138th 
monarch) who resolved to suppress theii- order, which had become 
too powerful and dangerous to the state ; and at this time, according 
to Keating, they were one thousand in number. A great national 
convention was held, a.d. 590, at Dromcat, in Derry, to regulate 
the disputes between the monarch and the Bards ; to which assembly 
St. ColumtiUe came from lona in the Hebrides, and having advo- 
cated the cause of the Bards, he adjusted the contention — thus pre- 
venting the order from being abolished, and advising their contin- 
uance, under proper regulations, as an important national institu- 
tion. In the beginning of the seventeenth century, a remarkable 
literary contention arose between the Bards of Leath-Cuin (or those 
of Meath, Ulster, and Connaught,) and those of Zeath-Mogha (or 
those of Leinster and Munster), of which a full and very inte- 
resting account is given at the year 1600. in O'Reilly's "Irish 
Writers." This curious collection of poems is entitled lomarbhaidh- 
na-n-Eigeas or "The Contention of the Learned" ; there are copies 
of it in various libraries, and it would form an interesting work if 
translated and published. The Bards of Ireland were for many 
centuries proscribed and persecuted, and great numbers of them put 
to death by the English government ; and many penalties were 
enacted against them by the parliaments, as in the "Statute of 
Kilkenny", etc. 


The Bog of Allen is chiefly situated in Kildare, but it also extends 
into the King's and Queen's counties, and partly into Westraeath ; 
and is estimated to contain about three hundred thousand acres * It * 
is, like the other bogs of Ireland, composed chiefly of the remains 
of ancient forests of oak, pine, yew, hazel, birch, alder, mountain- 
ash, and poplar ; and the vast quantity of bogs in Ireland shows the 
great extent of the forests in former times, and hence one of the 
ancient names of Ireland was Fiodh-Inis, signifying the "Woody 

' Acres : We read that in the reign of the Irish Monarch, King Cormac MacArt, 
the site of the Bog of Allen was covered by an extensiTe forest. 



Oak forests particularly abounded in Ireland in ancient times, and 
the Irish oak was so very durable that it was found superior to that 
of any other country for ship-building, timber for houses, furniture, 
and various other purposes. In our old historians are accounts of 
the clearing of many great plains and cutting down forests in 
various parts of Ireland, in the earliest ages. In the clearing out of 
these great plains the forests were destroyed, and great quantities 
of trees are found deeply buried in the bogs ; and in the formation 
of the " Grand Canal," when cutting through the Bog of AUeu, in 
Kildare, oak, fir, yew, and other trees were found buried twenty or 
thirty feet below the surface, and these trees generally lie prostrated 
in a horizontal position, and have the appearance of being burned 
at the bottom of their trunks and roots : fire having been found far 
more powerful in prostrating those forests than cutting them down 
with the axe ; and the great depth at which those trees are found 
in bogs, shows that they must have lain there for many ages. 


AccoEDiNG to Cox, in his Hibernia Anglicana, " The necessities of 
the State, A.D. 15i6, obliged King Henry VIII. to coin brass or 
mixed money, and to make it current in Ireland, by proclamation ; 
to the great dissatisfaction of all the people, especially the soldiers." 
Ware also says that about this time King Henry, to maintain 
his charges in Ireland, being hard put to it for lack of monies, gave 
directions to coin brass money, and commanded it by proclamation 
to pass as current and lawful money in all parts of Ireland. Simon, 
in his Essay on Irish Coins, says : " The money struck for Ireland 
in this reign was little better than brass". This base coin was 
made current in Ireland instead of silver, in six-pences, groats, half- 
groats, and pennies, and it was also circulated in the reign of Ed- 
ward the Sixth ; but Simon says that Queen Mary, on her accession 
to the Crown, in order that she might ingratiate herself with the 
people of England, prohibited the currency of the base money there, 
and ordered gold aud silver money to be made of a better standard ; 
but Ireland was particularly excepted in the proclamation issued 
for that purpose. According to Simon, ten thousand pound s worth 
of base monies were, a.d. ] o5i (in the reign of Philip and Mary), 
coined for Ireland ; and, in the years 1556 and 1557, seven thousand 
pounds worth of the same were coined into shillings, sixpences, and 
groats for Ireland, and five thousand five hundred pounds more of 
this base money was coined into "Harp-groats"; so that in less 
than three years about twenty-three thousand pounds worth of this 
base money was coined and circulated in Ireland. These coins are 
estimated by Simon not to have been worth more than about one- 
tourth of the value for which they passed ; so that one pound of this 
base money was worth only five shillings. 


In the reign of Queen Elizabeth, according to Simon, the ounce of 
silver in England was first divided into sixty pennies, which was in 
ancient times divided into only twenty pennies ; so that one of the 
old silver pennies of the reigns of the Edwards, was equal to three 
pence of the reign of Elizabeth. "The base money coined by 
Elizabeth being decried in England", says Simon, "was sent over in 
great quantities into Ireland, where the Bungals, as they were then 
called, went for six pence, and the broad pieces for twelve pence; but 
in a short time after, the former passed only for two pence, and the 
latter for a groat; and, when they were refused elsewhere, they passed 
in Connaught — the first for one penny, and the last for two pence. " 
Bwnn or Bonn was the Irish term applied to various coins, from a groat 
to a shilling; and geal means "white", and the bungals above mentioned 
signify " shillings" ; the broad piece mentioned was about half a 
crown, but of such base metal that its value was afterwards reduced 
to two pence, and the shilling passed for one penny. About the 
year 1600, money was coined for the service of the army in Ireland, 
so debased that it contained only between two and three ounces of 
silver to nine ounces of brass ; this base money, according to Sir 
John Davies, Fynes Morrison, Camden, and Simon, was sent over in 
great quantities to pay the army engaged in Ireland against Hugh 
O'Neill, earl of Tyrone, as the war drew yearly out of England 
upwards of one hundred and sixty thousand pounds sterling. This 
base money, being extensively circulated, caused goods and provisions 
of all kinds to rise double 'the usual price, and impoverishment and 
discontent, not only among the Irish, but in the English army. 

In the reign of King James the First, proclamations were issued 
ordering the base money of the reign of Queen Elizabeth to pass at 
one fourth its former value ; that is, the shilling for three pence, 
and the six-penny piece for three halfpence ; and, in the same 
reign, it was ordered that money should pass current in Ireland at 
one-third more than in England : thus, an English shilling passed for 
sixteen pence in Ireland ; five shillings, for six and eight pence ; 
and a pound was equal to about twenty-six shUliugs. 

King James the Second, to supply funds for the support of his 
army, and various expenses in Ireland, was under the necessity of 
substituting base money for silver ; and, according to Simon, set 
up two mints, one in Limerick, and the other in Capel-street, 
Dublin, where a vast quantity of base money was coined, consisting 
of halfcrowns, shillings, and sixpences, made of a mixed metal of a 
whitish colour, consisting of copper, brass, and tin ; and also some 
pennies made of copper and lead or pewter, and circulating through- 
out the country, as a substitute for silver coin. The various base 
coinages made current in Ireland by the kings and queens of Eng- 
land, and extensively circulated instead of silver money, were, of 
course, extremely injurious to the trade and commerce of the 
country, and greatly impoverished the inhabitants. 

In the " Dissertations" of Charles O'Connor, and in O'Reilly's " Irish 


Writers", accounts are given of many famous Brehons and chie f 
judges who flourished from the first to the eighth eentury, as Sean,. 
Moran, Modan, Conla, Fithil, Fachtna, Sencha, the three brothers 
named Burachans or Burechans, etc. ; these eminent men formed 
and perfected a great code of laws, which, from their spirit of equity, 
were designated Breltfie, Neimhidh, signifying ' ' Celestial Judgments". 
The most renowned of these Brehons, for the justice of his judg- 
ments was Moran, son of Cairbre-oeann-Caitt, the lOlst monarch, 
who reigned in the first century of oar Era , and (see Note, page 48} 
he is represented in his office of chief judge of the kingdom, as 
wearing on his neck a golden ornament called lodhan Morain or 
" Moran's Collar", which is described in VaUanoy's CollectaTiea j 
and this collar was fancifully said to press closely on the neck of 
the wearer, and almost choke him, if he attempted to pronounce an 
unjust judgment. Amongst the chief Breton families were the fol- 
lowing : — The MacEgans, hereditarj' Brehons in Connaught, in 
Leinster, and in Ormond ; the O'Doraus, Brehons to the MacMur- 
roghs, kings of Leinster ; the MaoClancys, of Clare, Brehons to 
the O'Briens, kings of Thomond, to the Fitzgeralds, earls of Des- 
mond, and other great families in Munster ; the O'flagans of TuUa- 
hoge, in Tyrone, Brehons to the O'Neills, princes of Tyrone ; the 
O'Breslins of Donegal, Brehons to the O'Donnells, and to the Ma- 
guires, lords of Fermanagh. 

In the Tracts of Sir John Davis, an interesting account is given of 
O'Breslin, the Brehon to Maguire : Sir John, who was attorney- 
general to King James the First, having proceeded to various parts 
of Ulster, about a.d. 1607, together with the judges and chancellor, 
to hold assizes, on coming to Fermanagh they required to know the 
tenure by which Maguire held his lands ; and having sent for the 
Brehon, O'Breslin, who was a very feeble old man, he came to the 
camp, and the judges having demanded his EoU, he at first refused 
to show it, but at length on the lord chancellor taking an oath that 
he would return it safe, the old Brehon drew the JJoll out of hi& 
bosom, and gave it to the chancellor. The Irish MS. was well 
written, and, having been translated for the judges, it was found to 
contain an account of the rents and tributes paid to Maguire, which 
consisted of cattle, corn, provisions, hogs, meal, butter, etc. (see 
Note *, page 174) ; but Davis says he lost the copy of the roll at 


The learned Baxter, in his " Glossary of British Antiquities", and 
many others are of opinion that the Brigantes were the same as the 
Briges or Fhryges of Strabo, and other ancient geographers ; and 
originally possessed the country called Phrygia, in Asia Minor, near 
the Euxine Sea. These Phrygians, long before the Christian Era, 
like the Iberians of Asia, a neighbouring nation, sent a colony 


through Thrace to Spain, which settled near the Celtiberians ; and 
their chief city was called by Ptolemy and other Greek geographers, 
Brugatitia and Phlaouin Brigantion, by the Romans Plavia Br'ujan- 
Hum, and by Orosius and Ortelius Brigantm and Brigantium, which 
is now the city of •' Corunna," in Gallicia, in the north of Spain. 

The Brigantes of Spain are supposed by others to have been 
Phcenicians ; and there was a celebrated Pharos or "watch-tower" 
built, it is said, by the Phoenicians at Brigantia, or, accordmg to 
Orosius, the tower was erected by the Tyrian Hercules*. This tower 
was called by the Irish writers Tur-Breogain or "The Tower of 
Breogan", and was said to have been built by the famous warrior 
named Breogan, who was king of North Spain, and uncle of Mile- 
sius, a quo the Milesian or Scotic Irish Nation; from this tower the 
sons of MUesius and their followers set sail for Erin. The descen- 
dants of this Breogan were called by the Irish writers Glami-na- 
Breogain — a term latinized Brigantes ; therefore, there is a remark- 
able coincidence between the Irish writers and ancient geographers, 
as to the origin of the Brigantes : the Irish making them a colony 
from Scythia, near the Euxine Sea, who settled in Spain in very 
remote times ; and various geographers considering them to have 
been Phrygians, ■ who were Celto-Scythians from Asia Minor, also 
near the Euxine sea. The Clann-na-Breogain came to Ireland with 
the Milesians, of whom they were a branch ; and were powerful 
and numerous tribes. 

As to the origin of the Brigantes of Britain, they are considered 
by Dr. O'Connor, and by the learned Spaniard, Florian Del Campo 
(quoted in the Ogygia Vindicata], to have been originally some of 
the Brigantes of Spain, who first came to Ireland in very remote 
times, and some of whom emigrated thence to Britain ; and Dr. 
O'Connor, in his Rerum. Hib. Script. Vet., states that the Brigautea 
of Britain are mentioned by Seneca and other Roman writers, under 
the name of Scoto Brigantes, as being considered of Scotic or Irish 
origin : they were also designated by the epithet Oeruleos, from their 
bodies having been painted a blue colour. The Brigantes of Bri- 
taio formed a powerful people in the northern parts of England, 
and possessed the territories now forming the counties of Lancaster, 
York, Cumberland, Westmoreland, and Durham ; and were cele- 
brated for their valour and long resistance to the Roman legions. 
The Brigantes of Spain, Ireland, and Britain were Celts or Celto- 
Scythians, and spoke a dialect of the Celtic language. 


The Romans designated as Celto-Scythia those countries about the 
Euxine sea, including parts of Europe and Asia — those territories 
being inhabited by the Celto-Scythce, that is a mixture of Celts and 

* Tyrian Hercules : For the Phoenician Hercules, the reputed founder of Tjre,

Scythians; and they are mentioned by Plutarch in his life of Marius- 
TheThracians and the Pelasgians (a people of Thrace), who were the 
most ancient inhabitants of Greece, were Celto-Scythians, ; also 
the Iberians who dwelt in Iberia, between the Euxine and Caspian 
seas, were a mixture of Celts and Scythians, and from them were 
descended the Oeonjkms and Circassians, and the Caucasian clans, 
who have been always famous for the valour of their men, and 
beauty of their women; and, in modern times, their bravery has been 
conspicuously displayed in their resistance to the Russians. The 
ancient inhabitants of Italy were chiefly Celts, or a mixture of Celts 
and Scythians. The Cimbrians and Belgians, ancient people of 
Germany and Gaul, who sent colonies to Britain in early ages, were 
likewise Celto-Scythians, and so were the Iberians, Celtiberians, 
and Cantabrians of Spain, and the Brigantes of Spain, Ireland, and 
Britain ; and the Milesian Irish, the Britons, the Picts, and Caledo- 
nians appear to have been all a mixture of Celts and Scythians. 


The Cimmerii of the Roman writers, called by the Greelaa Kimmeroi, 
were an ancient people who inhabited the territories near the Euxine 
■ sea, on the borders of Europe and Asia, about the Cimmerian Bospho- 
rus, called the Palus Meotis, now the " Sea of Asov." The term 
Ciinhri, according to Plutarch, signified " robbers", or, according to 
Mallett, the word " Cimbri ", means warriors or giants ; and 
" Cimber", in the Gothic and German language signified a robber. 
According to some writers, the C'imbric were a Gothic or Teutonic 
race, but others consider they were originally Celts, and descended 
from the Cimmerians above mentioned ; but becoming mixed with 
the Teutonic tribes of Germany, were afterwards a mixed race of 
Celts and Germans or Celto-Scythiaus, and their language was a 
compound of the Celtic and Teutonic. 

In very remote ages, according to the " Welsh Triads", in the 
Celtic Researches of Uavies, and other ancient records, the " Cymry", 
who were said to have been the first inhabitants of Britain, are 
stated to have come from the east, near Defrobani, now Constanti- 
nople, under a chief called Hu Gadaran ; and other colonies of the 
Cymry are stated to have come from Gaul under a chief named 
Prydan, who was the son of Aed Mawr (which is the same as the 
Irish Aodh Mor), or " Hugh the Great", and from this Prydan the 
country was called Inish Pi-ydain, or " The Island of Prydan", from 
whom, it is said, came the name of " Britain" ; but, according to 
Camden, the name was derived from Brit, which in the Celtic and 
Irish signifies "painted", or " variegated", as the ancient Britons 
painted their bodies ; according to O'Brien, the name was derived 
from Brit, "painted", and tan, " a territory", signifying " the country 


of the painted people " ; and. according to others, the name was 
derived irom Briotan Maol. The Cymri or ancient Britons, who 
were settled in the north of England, were called Uumbri, and gave 
its name to Cumbria or "Cumberland". From these accounts it 
therefore appears that the ancient Britons were chiefly Celts, but 
mixed with the Germans or Teutonic race. 


An account of the palace of the celebrated Cormao Mac Art, mon- 
arch of Ireland in the third century, is given by various historians. 
It was called Teach Miodkchuarta, signifying either the "House of 
Banquets", or the "House of Conventions"; also Teach-na-Laech, 
or the " House of the Heroes" ; and it was the place in which were 
held the great i^ej-s Teamhracli, or the " Conventions of Tara" In 
its halls the monarchs gave their great banquets ; and entertained 
the provincial king?, princes, and chiefs. It is stated that the length 
of the structure was three hundred feet ; the breadth, fifty cubits 
or about eighty feet ; and the height, thirty cubits or nearly fifty 
feet. It contained numerous apartments besides the royal bed- 
chamber, and had on it fourteen doors ; and it is stated that there 
were seven other great habitations adjoining the palace. Cormac* 
was the son of Art, the son of Couu of the Hundred Battles, mon- 
archs of Ireland, of the race of Heremon ; he was one of the most 
celebrated of the Irish kings, for munificence, learning, wisdom, and 
valour ; and the glories of his palace at Tara were, for many ages, 
the theme of the Irish bards. Amongst other splendid articles it 
is mentioned that he had at the royal banquets one hundred and 
fifty massive goblets of pure gold. Cormac's palace was situated 
on the Hill of Tara, and a great part of the circular earthen ram- 
parts, together with a large mound in the centre, still remain. 
The palace is considered to have been built chiefly of wood, from 
the oak forests in ancient times so abundant in Ireland ; and was 
probably in part formed of stone-work|, or a fortress of Cyclo- 
pean architecture, composed of great stones without cement : and 
though few of those stones now remain, they may have been re- 
moved in the course of ages, and placed in other buildings, par- 
ticularly as the hill of Tara was easily accessible. Though this 
royal residence could not be compared with the elegant stone-buil- 
dings of more modem times, yet it was distinguished for all the 
rude magnificence peculiar to those early ages. On the hill of Tara 
were also erected several other raths or fortresses and mounds, as

was sometimes called Cormac " MacCuinn", as well as Cormac MacArt.

mentioned by various ancient historians ; amongst those fortresses 
were Cathair Orqfinn, or " Crofinn's fortress" —so called fronl Cro- 
iinn, one of the Tuath De Danan queens, and this buOding was also 
called Tur-Trean-Teamhrach, signifying the "Strong Tower of 
Tara." As the term Cathair was applied only to stone buUdings, 
this was probably a fortress of Cyclopean architecture, the stones 
of which may have been removed in the course of time ; and the 
Danaus are stated by the old writers to have built fortresses in 
other parts of Ireland, particularly that called Aileach Neid, iu 
TirconneU, situated on a great hill near Lough SwOly, in the 
county Donegal — and of this Cyclopean fortress some ruins still 

At Tara was also the building called Mur-Ollamlian or the 
" House of the Learned", in which resided the bards, brehons, and 
other learned men ; and likewise Rath-na-Seancidh. which signifies 
either the " Fort of the Conventions" or of the " Synods", and 
said to be so called from great meetings held there at different 
times by St. Patrick, St. Adamnan, St. Brendan, and St. Ruad- 
han ; also Rath-na-Eiogh, or the " Fortress of the Kings" ; Dumha- 
na-nGiall, or the " Mound of the Hostages", where there was a 
fortress in which the hostages were kept ; and Dumha-na-mEan- 
amus, signifying the "Mound of the Warlike Women,"' which was 
probably either a habitation or burial place of those ancient hero- 
ines ; there was likewise a habitation called Cluan-Feart, or the 
" Sacred Retreat", which was the residence of the Vestal Virgins 
or Druidesses . 

There were also habitations at Tara, for the warriors, Druids, 
Brehons, and bards, and also for the provincial kings, princes, and 
chiefs who attended at the great national conventions; and, therefore, 
the place was considered as a city in those times. There are many 
remains of the mounds, raths, and other antiquities still remaining at 
Tara; but many of those mounds and ramparts have been levelled iu 
the course of ages. According to the ancient historians, many of the 
kings, queens, and warriors of the early ages were buried at Tara, 
and several sepulchral mounds were there raised to their memory. 
In one of the earthen ramparts at Tara were discovered, a.d. ISIO, 
two of the ornaments called torques ; a sort of golden collar of 
spiral or twisted workmanship, and of a circular form, open at one 
side, worn on the necks of ancient kings and chiefs, and similar to 
those which were worn by the ancient kings and chiefs of Gaul, and 
were called tore in the Celtic language. One of the torques discovered 
at Tara is five feet seven inches in length, and something more than 
twenty-seven ounces in weight, and all formed of the purest gold ; 
the other torque is beyond twelve ounces in weight, and they form 
some of the most interesting remains of ancient Irish art. 

In the celebrated work called DUueanclius, which gives an account 
of the origin of the names of remarkable places in ancient Ireland, 
and was composed by Amergin, chief bard to Dermod, monarch of 
Ireland in the sixth century, the origin of the name Teamur is thus 
given : Teph or Tephi, a daughter of Bachtir, king of Brigantia in 


Spain having been married to Canthou, king of Britain, died there, 
but her body was brought back to Spain, and a mur or " mound" was 
erected to her memory, and called Tephi-mur or the " Mound of 
Tephi" Tek, daughter of Lughaidh, aon of Ith, and queen of Here- 
mon, the first Milesian monarch of Ireland, having seen the mound 
of Tephi, while in Spain, caused a similar mound to be constructed 
when she came to Ireland, as a sepulchral monument for herself; and, 
being buried there, it was called Tea-Mnr, signifying "Tea's Mound", 
and hence was derived "Tara" or "Temor", latinized "Temora" 
or "Temoria" In after times it was called Teamhair-na-Rioqh, or 
"Tara of the Kings"; and Rath Cormaic, or the "Fortress of 
Cormac". It is also mentioned by old writers under the names of 
Druim Aiobhin and Tulach Aoibhin, signifjdng the " Beautiful or 
Delighful, Hill". Kineth O'Hartigan, a celebrated bard of the tenth 
century, wrote a poem on Tara, contained in the " Book of Bally- 
mote," from which have been translated the following among other 
s : — 

" It was a famous fortress of wisdom ; 

It was ennobled with warlike chiefs ; 

To be viewed it was a splendid hUl, 

During the time of Cormac O'Cuinn (Cormac Mac Art). 

" When Cormac was in his grandeur, 
Brilliant and conspicuous was his course ; 
No fortress was found equal to Temor, 
It was the secret of the road of life. 

"Enlightened was his train of barda, 
Who kept their records in careful order, 
And what they said was respected by the 
Professors in each art. 

" When Cormac resided at Temor, 
His fame was heard by all the exalted ; 
And a king like the son of Art-Ean-Fhear 
There came not of the men of the world".*

Of that massive rude architecture composed of large stones without 
cement and forming walls and fortresses of immense strength, there 
are many remains in Ireland, resembling the Cyclopean architecture 
of ancient Greece and Etruria: such as the fortresses of Aileach, in 
Donegal; and of Dtm Aotiguis, on one of the Arran Isles, off the coast 
of Galway. At Knockfennell, in Limerick, and Cahir Concree, in 
Kerry, are the remains of Cyclopean fortresses ; similar remains are 
at Cahirdonnell, in the parish of Kilcrohane, county Kerry ; but the 
most remarkable specimen of Cyclopean architecture in Ireland is 
that callad Staigue Fort, situate also in the parish of Kilcrohane, on 
a hill near the bay of Kenmare. It is built of stones, without 
cement, but of admirable architecture, of a circular form ; and the 
internal area about ninety feet in diameter, the walls eighteen feet 
high and thirteen feet thick, a doorway opening to the interior ; on 
the outside a broad and deep fosse surrounds the entire building. 
A full account of ' ' Staigue Fort", given by Mr. Bland in the year 
1821, may be seen in the 14th volume of the "Transactions of the 
Royal Irish Academy" ; and there is a model of the fort in the Royal 
Dublin Society House. 

That Ireland has been peopled from the most remote ages, there 
exists abundant evidence over the entire country.* In every county, 
and almost in every parish are found some memorials, such as 
remains of Cromleacs, Druidical temples, round towers, cairns, 
sepulchral mounds, Cyclopean fortresses, raths, and other antiquities, 
the histories of which, and even their traditions, are long lost in the 
night of time. 

The Northmen erected many fortresses and strongholds for their 
defence in Ireland, one of which of stone, namely " Reginald's 
Tower", still remains at Waterford ; and they are considered to 
have constructed many of those circular earthen ramparts com- 
monly called Forts or Danish Baths ; but though they may have 
constructed many of those raths, most of them throughout Ireland 
were erected by the ancient Irish themselves, as fortresses and habi- 
tations, many centuries before the Danes came to Ireland. The 
sepulchral mounds, commonly called Moats, have been attributed

to the Danes ; but thesa earth works were chiefly constructed by 
the Irish as sepulchres for kings and warriors in the Pagan times . 
Ledwich and some other antiquarians have absurdly attributed 
the erection of almost all the ancient stone buildings in Ireland, 
before the English invasion, to the Danes, and amongst other struc- 
tures, they have maintained the absurd theory, that the Danes 
built the Round Towers and many of the old stone churches ; but, 
instead of building, the Danes more probably destroyed many of the 
Towers, and they demolished many hundreds of the churches. But, 
after their conversion to Christianity, the Danes built a few churches, 
amongst others Christ Church and St. Miohan's, in the city of 
Dublin ; and some in Waterford, Limerick, and Cork. Some of the 
ancient weapons of bronze and iron, bronze pots, and other culinary 
utensils, war trumpets, etc., found in bogs, lakes, and other places, 
are supposed by some to be Danish remains ; but it is much more 
probable that they were mostly Irish. Some of them, no doubt, 
may have been Danish ; but it is very difiicult now to determine 
whether those remains are Danish or Irish antiquities. The Danes, 
are traditionally said to have brewed a kind of strong beer ; and to 
have used the tops of the heath as one of the ingredients, probably 
as a substitute for hops. 


The term Pale, signifying a fence or enclosure, was applied to those 
English settlements in Ireland, within which their laws and autho- 
rity prevailed; and the designation "Pale" appears to have been 
first applied to the English territory about the beginning of the 
fourteenth century. Spencer, in his " View of Ireland " (written in 
the reign of Queen Elizabeth), speaking of the invasion of Edward 
Bruce, a.d. 1316, says — "he burned and spoiled all the old English 
Pale." The extent of the Pale varied much at different periods, and 
Spencer says again of Bruce's forces — " they marched forth into the 
English Pale, which then was chiefly in the north, from the point of 
Dunluce (in the county Antrim), and beyond into Dublin, having in 
the midst Knookfergus (now ' Carrickfergus'), Belfast, Armagh, and 
Carhngford, which are now the most out-bounds and abandoned 
places in the English Pale, and indeed not counted of the English 
Pale at all, for it stretched now no further than Dundalk towards 
the North." According as the English power extended, so did the 
Pale, and it was considered to comprise at some periods the counties 
of Antrim, Down, part of Armagh, Louth, Meath, Westmeath, 
Dublin, Kildare, King's and Queen's Counties, Carlow, KOkenny, 
Tipperary, Waterford, Wexford, and part of Wioklow; but in general 
the name "Pale" was confined to the counties of Dublm, Louth, 
Meath, and Kildare. 

Campion, in his Chronicle says : "An old distinction there is of 
Ireland into Irish and English Pales, for when the Irish had raised 
continual tumults against the English planted here with the con- 
quest, at last they coursed them into a narrow circuit of certain 


shires in Leinster, which the English did choose as the fattesT soil, 
most defensible, their proper right, and most open to receive help from 
England ; hereupon it was termed their Pale, as whereout they durst 
not peep ; but now, both within this Pale uncivil Irish and some 
rebels do dwell, and without it countries and cities English are well 
governed." It appears that the Irish who dwelt ■« ithin the Pale, 
and acknowledged English authority, were considered as subjects, 
had to a certain extent the protection of English laws ; but all the 
Irish outside the Pale were styled Irish enemies, not being recog- 
nised as subjects ; while the Anglo-Irish, or Irish of English de- 
scent, who resisted the Government, were termed English rebels, 
being accounted as subjects. 

The native Irish, according to Sir .Tohn Davies, being reputed as 
aliens, or rather enemies, it was adjudged no felony to kill a mere 
Irishman in time of peace ; and it appears that if an Englishman 
killed one of the mere Irish, he was only fined a mark. Various 
penal laws against the native Irish were passed in the parliaments 
of the Pale, particularly the " Statute of Kdkeiiny", a.d. 1367, in 
the reign of King Edward the Third, which prohibited, under the 
penalty of high treason, any intermarriages, fosterage, or similar 
connexions, between the families of English descent and the native 
Irish ; and imprisonment, fines, and forfeiture of lands and goods 
were inflicted on such English as permitted the Irish to pasture or 
graze their cattle on their lands ; and similar penalties, prohibiting 
the appointment or promotion of any of the native Irish to bishops' 
sees, abbacies, church livings, or any ecclesiastical preferments ; 
and that any person of the English race speaking the Irish lan- 
guage, or adopting Irish names, dress, customs, or manners, should 
foi'feit all their goods, lands, and tenements ! 

In the reigns of the Henrys and the Edwards, kings of England, 
various other penal laws were passed against the native Irish, to 
compel them to change their names and take English surnames ; to 
give up the use of the Irish language, and speak only English ; to 
adopt the English dress, manners, and customs ; to cut off their 
glibs or flowing locks*, and shave their upper lips at least once a 

* Flowing lock^ : Up to the 2Sth year of the reign of Henry VIII,, the Irishmen 
in Ireland proudly wore long locks of hair, wliich was called CouUn [cooUn], and 
meant " long fair hair" : but an act was then passed resti-aining the Irish from 
wearing long locksovL their heads, or hair on their upper lips. That stringent Law 
inspired the composition of the exquiaite Irish song called the Couliii ("cuilfhion": 
Irish, a fair-hairfd or handsome person), which is rendered in Moore's Irish 
Melodies^" Though the last glimpse of Erin with son-ow I see"; and, for pathos, 
its music is amongst the choicest of all the Irish melodies : 

" To the gloonr of some desert or cold rocky shore, 
Where the eye of the stranger can haunt us no more, 
I will fly with my Coulin, and think the rough wind 
Less rude than the foes we leave frowning behind. 

" And I'll gaze on thy gold hair, 

As gi-aceful it wreathes, 
And hang o'er thy soft hai-p, 

As wildly it breathes ; 
Nor dread that the cold-hearted Saxon will tear 
One chord from that harj), or one lock froa that hair." 

— MooRE. 


fortniglit — otherwise to be punished as Irish enemies. The Irish 
resisted the relinquishment of their ancient customs, as they were 
extremely partial to wearing long flowing hair and beards on their 
upper lips ; and, notwithstanding these penal enactments, the Irish 
continued for centuries to use only their own language, manners, 
and customs. 

17.— FAIRIES. 

The idea prevalent among the peasantry of Ireland, Great Britain, 
and most of the northern nations of Europe, relative to preternatural 
beings inhabiting woods, mountains and wastes, and denominated 
in the EngHsh language Fairies, originated in the tenets of Poly- 
theism, or the sect of paganism professed by all the ancient inhabi- 
tants of Europe, before the light of the Gospel shone among them. 

Our ancestors, not content with deriving the origin of nature from 
an eternal almighty Pieing, delegated the works and operations of 
nature to subordinate divinities of different orders and degrees : 
some having immediate intercourse, and ultimately connected, with 
the Divine Being, from whom they thought they originated ; whilst 
others, though far superior to mankind, were only ministering 
spirits to those of higher dignity, In every order and degree, my- 
riads of these spiritual existences were supposed to inhabit all parts 
^of the universe ; some, they said, dwelt in the sun, some in the 
moon, and others in the planets and stars ; whilst others again 
were stationed on earth, superintending not only the affairs of man- 
kind, but every animal and vegetable production ; nay, rivers, lakes, 
plains^ valleys, rocks and mountains, were under their protection, 
and even the elements were said to have their guardian genii. The 
descriptions given of these aerial beings, in the traditions and 
superstitions of the people, are elegant and pleasing. They are 
generally defined blooming in full perfection of youth and beauty, 
enjoying the most elegant and tinished forms, and clothed in loose 
and flowing garments of azure, blu3 or purple, skirted with gold and 
silver, whilst chaplets of the most beautiful and odoriferous flowers of 
the different seasons, adorn their heads, necks and arms ; and gems, 
which exceeded in brilliance the pellucid drops of early dew, gave 
a lustre to their elegant golden tresses. Of these fanciful beings 
some were said to sport in living crystal waters, rivers and foun- 
tains ; others presiding over groves, forests and plains, reposed on 
carpets of violets and primroses, in bowers of jessamines, wood- 
bines and roses ; whilst others, furnished with gold plumed wings, 
rode through the regions of the air in cloudy chariots of the most 
splendid hues, where they directed the winds, rain, storms and 

Those which were supposed to preside over the forests and vege- 
table productions of the earth, the Irish and Britons denominated 
Feadh-Righ [Fairy], or " Woodland Divinities. " The Fairies were 


supposed to hold their habitations under the ground and in the 
bodies of trees : to them appertained the care of corn, fruit and 
cattle. They were generally favourable to the human race, though 
when, through the ingratitude of mankind, they were injured in 
any of their charges, they frequently notified their resentment on 
several subjects committed to their charge : the springs became 
turbid, the com and fruit blasted, and the cattle sickened and died. 
On which account great care and attention were employed to merit 
the favour of these guardian spirits; and no small degree of hom- 
age was paid to them. The ancient Irish generally sacrificed to 
them by pouring a part of what they drank upon the earth ; and 
so firmly did they believe in their existence, that there were persons 
in rural districts called Fairy Doctors, who were supposed to hold 
immediate intercourse with them, and prevented them from not 
only injuring the cattle, corn and trees, but cured them of such 
diseases as they were supposed to have inflicted on them. 

These imaginary beings among different nations have various 
names and employments, according to their situation and mode of 
life. Among the northern nations they were called Aafe, Fairies 
and Elves ; with the Greeks, Names ; with the Romans, Naiads, 
Nymphs, Silvans, Satyrs, etc. ; and in the Hebrew theology they 
make a considerable department. Whence it is evident that the 
opinion respecting Genii, Fairies, Spectre, and Apparitions, so pre- 
valent amongst most nations, arose from this ancient doctrine. — Gas- 
kin's Irif/i i'arieties. 


{Continued fiom the first series.) 

After the " flight" and attainder of the Earls of Tyrone and Tir- 
connell, their extensive possessions became forfeited to the Crown ; 
and not only the lands of the Earls, but those of all the Irish chiefs 
and proprietors in Ulster were confiscated. The tenants, and people 
of Irish descent were depiived of their lands ; and, according to 
Pynnar, the Swordsmen " were transported into the waste lands of 
Connaught and Munster, where they were dispersed, and not planted 
together in one place"; some of the Irish chiefs got re-grants from the 
Crown of small portions of their own hereditary lands. 

Fynes Morrison, who was in Ireland in the time of the lord deputy 
Mountjoy, having visited the country, a.d. 1613, sayst " At this 
time I found the state of Ireland much changed; for, by the flight of 
the earls of Tyrone and Tirconnell, with some chiefs of countries in 
the North, and the suppression and death of Sir Cahir O'Dogherty,* 
their confederate in making new troubles, all the North was 

O'Dogherty : See Note, page 167 : where some incidents in relation to this Sir 
Cahir O'Dogherty are related. 


possessed by new colonies of English, but especially of Scots. The 
mere Irish in the North, and over all Ireland, continued still in 
absolute subjection, being powerful in no part of the kingdom, 
excepting only in Connaught, where their chief strength was yet 
little to be feared, if the English Irish had sound hearts to the state." 
Thus after a continued contest and fierce wars for four hundred 
and thirty years — from the time of Strongbow, comprising the period 
from, A.D. 1 170 to 1600— the reduction of Ireland was ultimately 
effected by England ; and with the heroic struggles of Hugh O'Neill, 
and Red Hugh O'DonneU, terminated the power of the Irish princes 
and chiefs, not only in IJlster, but in all the other provinces, for, 
afterwards, with the exception of the great confederacy of A.D. 1641, 
and the insurrection of 1798, the Milesian Irish people made no 
national movement to recover their independence. — Connellan's F'oiir 


It has been shown that the office of Bards and Brehons was hered- 
itary in certain families, and so were various other offices, as those 
of physicians, military commanders, standard-bearers, etc. : thus, 
for instance, the O'Hickeys and O'CuUenans were hereditary physi- 
cians in Munster ; the O'Cassidys were the physicians of the Ma- 
guire, lords of Fermanagh ; the O'Dunlevys were physicians in 
Bonegal ; and the O'Sheils in Westmeath. The O'Hanlons, chiefs 
in Aimagh, were hereditary standard-bearers to the kings of 
Ulster, The MacSwineys, of Donegal, the MacDonneUs and Mac 
Sheehys, of Antrim, and the MaoCabes, of Cavan, were all famous 
commanders of galloglasses in Ulster, under the O'Neills, O'Don- 
nells, O'Reillys, Maguirea, etc. All these fighting tribes were men 
of great strength and valour, and were also often employed as gallo- 
glasses under the Bourkes of Connaught ; the Fitzgeralds, earls of 
K-ildare and Desmond, in Leinster and Munster ; and under the 
O'Briens, MacCarthys, and other great families in Munster. The 
MacDermotts, lords of Moylurg, in Roscommon, were hereditary 
marshals of Connaught ; and the Maenamaras of Clare were mar- 
shals of Thomond. The O'Malleys, of Mayo, and the O'Flaherty's, 
of Galway, were admirals of Connaught ; the O'Briens, of Arran, in 
Galway, were admirals on that coast ; and the O'Falveys and 
O'DriscoUs were admirals of Desmond. The O'Keeffes, O'Riordans*, 
O'Sullivans, and O'Mahonys of Cork and KeiTy, were also military 
commanders of note in Munster. The O'Moores, lords of Leix, were 
in ancient times the marshals and chief military commanders of 
Leinster ; the O'Molloys. of King's county, were standard-bearers 
of Leinster ; and the MacGeoghagans were marshals of Meath.

The account of "Brehonism" and "Tanistry", given in this and 
the first series, has been collected from the " Essay on the Brehon 
Laws", by Edward O'Eielly ; the "Annals of the Four Masters", 
the works of Ware and Vallancey, Cox's Hibernia Anglkana, the 
Tracts of Sir John Davis, Spenser's " View of Ireland", O'Flaherty's 
Ogygia, the "Dissertations" of Charles O'Connor, and other sources. 
It may be mentioned that there are still preserved in the Library 
of Trinity College, Dublin, large collections of Irish manuscripts on 
the Brehon Laws ; and there is a valuable glossary on these laws 
contained in the ancient work called the " Book of Ballymote." 


Julius Caesar, in his account of Britain, thus mentions Ireland : 
"Qua ex parte est Hibernia dimidio minor ut existimatur quam 
Britannia" ; which may be translated thus :— " On which side (the 
west) lies Ireland, less by half, it is supposed, than Britain." 
Tacitus, in the first century, in his "Life of Agricola," mentions 
Ireland under the name of Hibernia, and says — "Melius adituspor- 
tusque per commercia et negociatores cogniti": thus stating that 
its approaches and harbours were better known to commerce and to 
mariners than those of Britain. By Dioscorides, in the first century 
(as quoted by O'Flaherty), Ireland was called Hiberi ; and in the 
" Itinerary" of Antoninus, quoted in O'Brien's Irish Dictionary, at 
the word "Eirin," Ireland is called Iberione ; and by St. Patrick, 
in the Latin work called his " Confession" (which is given in vol. i. 
of O'Connor's {^Rerum Hibemicarum Scriptores Veteres), Ireland is 
caBed Hiberione and Hiberia, and the people Hiberiones and Hiieri- 
onaces. We have seen (in the first series) that, in the century 
before the Christian era, Ireland, was first called Hibernia, by 
Julius Cffisar ; and the people, Hiberni. By various other Latin 
writers the Irish are called Hiberni and Hibernenses. 


Ireland was called by several Eoman writers. Insula Sacra or "The 
Sacred Island", from its being a celebrated seat of Druidism ; and 
this name is considered to have the same signification as the Greek 
term If me, derived from the Greek leros, " sacred", and Nesos, " an 
island." Hanno and Bimilco, celebrated Carthaginian commanders, 
made voyages to various countries of Europe some centuries before 
the Christian era ; and the record ot their voyages, termed Periplus, 
was deposited by Hanno in the temple of Cronus, at Carthage ; and 
from the Annals of Carthage, in the Punic Language, Rufus Festus

extracted an account of various countries from the " Periplus " of 
Hanno, in which work Britain and Ireland are mentioned. The 
passage referring to Ireland is as follows : 

" Ast hinc duobus in Kacram, sic insulam 
JJixere prisci, solibus cursus rati est ; 
Haec inter undas multam cespitem jacit, 
Eamque late gens Hibernicorum colit, 
Propinqua versus insula A Ibionum patet. " 

Translated : 

" But from this place (the ScUly Islands, off the coast of England), 
to the island which the ancients called sacred, is a distance of two 
days' sail ; its laud extends widelj' amidst the waters, and the 
nation of Hibernians extensively inhabit it, and near it lies the 
island of the Albiones (that is Albion or England;.'' 


The meeting of Graine-Ui-Mhaille [Grana Wale) or "Grace 
O'Malley" and Elizabeth is a circumstance as singular as it is well 
authenticated, Dressed in the simple costume of her country, with 
her crimson mantle flung across her shoulders, the Irish chieftainess 
approached the stately Tudor, seated on her Throne, surrounded by 
her glittering court ; and, undazzled by the splendour of the scene, 
addressed the Queen of England, less as a mistress, than as a sister 
sovereign : 

(Fkom the Irish.) 

There stands a tower by the Atlantic side — 

A grey old tower, by storm and sea- waves beat — 
Perch'd on a clLflf beneath it, yawneth wide 

A lofty cavern — of yore a fit retreat 

For pirates' galleys ; altho' now, you'll meet 
Nought but the seal and wild gall ; from that cave 

A hundred steps do upwards lead your feet 
Unto a lonely chamber ! — Bold and brave 
Is he who climbs that stair, all slippery from the wave. 

I sat there on an evening. In the west. 

Amid the waters, sank the setting sun ; 
While clouds, like parting friends, about him prest. 

Clad in their fleecy garbs, of gold and dun ; 

And silence was around me — save the hum 
Of the lone wild bee, or the curlew's cry. 

And lo ! upon me did a vision come. 
Of her who built that tower, in days gone by ; 
And in that dream, behold ! I saw a building high. 


A stately hall — lofty and carved the roof — 

Was deck'd with silken banners fair to see. 
The hangings velvet, from Genoa's woof, 

And wrought with Tudor roses curiously ; 

At its far end did stand a canopy. 
Shading a chair of state, on which was seen 
A ladye fair, whose look of majesty, 

Amid a throng, 'yclad in costly sheen — 
Nobles and gallant knights proclaim her England's Queen. 

The sage Elizabeth ! and by her side 

Were group'd her counsellors, with calm, grave air, 
Burleigh and Walsingham, with others, tried 

In wisdom and in war, and sparkling there. 

Like Summer butterflies, were damsels fair, 
Beautiful and young : behind, a trusty band 

Of stalwart yeomanry, with watchful care. 
The portal guard, while nigher to it stand 
Usher and page, ready to ape with willing hand. 

A Tucket sounds, and lo ! there enters now 
A stranger group, in saffron tunics drest : 

A female ai their head, whose step and brow 
Herald her rank, and, calm and self possest, 
Onward she came, alone, through England's best. 

With careless look, and bearing free, yet high, 
Tho' gentle dames their titterings scarce represt, 

Noting her garments as she passed them by ; 

None laughed again who met that stern and flashing eye. 

Restless and dark, its sharp and rapid look 

Show'd a fierce spirit, prone a wrong to feel, 
And quicker to revenge it. As a look. 

That sun-burnt brow did fearless thoughts reveal ; 

And in her girdle was a skeyne of steel ; 
Her crimson mantle, a gold brooch did bind ; 

Her flowing garments reached unto her heel ; 
Her hair — part fell in tresses unconfined. 
And part, a silver bodkin did fasten up behind. 

'Twas not her garb that caught the gazer's eye — ■ 

Tho' strange, 'twas rich, and, after its fashion, good — 

But the wild grandeur of her mien — erect and high. 
Before the English Queen she dauntless stood, 
And none her bearing there could scorn as rude ; 

She seemed as one well used to power — one that hath 
Dominion over man of savage mood. 

And dared the tempest in its midnight wrath, 

And thro' opposing billows cleft her fearless path. 


And courteous greeting Elizabeth then pays, 

And bids her welcome to her English land 
And humble hall. Each looked with curious gaze 

Upon the other's face, and felt they stand 

Before a spirit like their own. Her hand 
The stranger raised — and pointing where all pale, 

Thro' the high casement, came the sunlight bland. 
Gilding the scene and group with rich avail ; 
Thus, to the English Sov'reigu, spoke proud " Grana Wale" • 

" Queen of the Saxons ! from the distant west 

1 come ; from Achill steep and Island Clare'*, 
Where the wild eagle builds, 'mid clouds, his nest. 

And ocean flings its billows in the air. 

I come to greet you in your dwelling fair. 
Led by your fame — lone sitting in my cave. 

In sea-beat Doona — it hath reached me there. 
Theme of the minstrel's song ; and then I gave 
My galley to the wind, and crossed the dark green wave. 

" Health to thee, ladye ! — let your answer be 

Health to our Irish land ; for evil men 
Do vex her sorely, and have buoklar'd thee 

Abettor of their deeds ; a lyeing train, 

That cheat their mistress for the love of gain. 
And wrong their trust —aught else I little reck, 

Alike to me, the mountain and the glen — • 
The castle's rampart or the galley's deck ; 
But thou my country spare — your foot is on her nech." 

Thus brief and bold, outspake that ladye stern, 

And all stood silent thro' that crowded haU ; 
Wmle proudly glared each proud and manly kern 

Attendant on their mistress. Then courtly all 

Elizabeth replies, and soothing fall 
Her words, and pleasing to the Irish ear — 

Fair promises — that she would soon recall 
Her evfl servants. Were these words sincere ? 
That promise kept ? Let Erin answer with a tear ! 


In the years 1537, 1538, and 1541, various Acts of Parliament were 
passed for the suppression of religious houses in Ireland, and during 

* Clare : "Clare Island" and "Achill Island" are off the western coast of the 
county Mayo. Clare Island is still in the possession of Sir Samuel O'Malley, 
who claims to be the lineal descendant of the " O'Malley" family. At Caii-ig- 
kooley (" the castle in the nook or secret place") the tourist is shown an aper- 
ture made in the sea-wall i>f the chamber of Grace O'Malley, through which a 
cable was passed, fastening her galley at one end, and coiled round her bed-post 
at the other ; by this means our illustrious heroine, who was sometimes called 
the "Dark Lady of Doona", was always ready for any alarm. 


the reigns of Henry VIII., Edward VI., and Elizabeth, all the abbeys, 
monaateries, priories, convents, etc. , were abolished ; their extensive 
lands and endowments were confiscated and seized by the Crown, 
and the abbey and church lands, and Erenach lands (all of which 
were denominated Termon lands,) were conferred in large grants on 
laymen, chiefly the nobility and gentry of the country. Numerous 
colleges, seminaries, and schools attached to the abbeys, were also 
suppressed, and likewise the hospitals and Biatachs. The " Biatachs" 
were charitable institutions or houses of hospitality, and are frequently 
mentioned in the course of the Annals of the Four Masters ; the 
name in the Irish is Biadhtach (derived from "biadh " : Irish, Jood, 
and " teach," a house, and hence), signifying "houses of entertain- 
ment" ; and the lands appropriated for their maintenance were 
termed Baile Biadhtaigh (anglicised " Bally betagh"), that is the 
toimiland of the Biatach ; and the name Biatach or Betach*, was 
likewise appUed to the keepers of those houses, who were sometimes 
laymen, and sometimes ecclesiastics — many of whom are recorded by 
the "Four Masters". These Biatachs were amply endowed with 
grants of lands, cattle, sheep, etc. , by the Irish princes and chiefs, 
for the public entertainment of all travellers and strangers; the sick, 
the poor, and indigent. These houses of hospitality were extremely 
numerous in all parts of the country in ancient times ; and it is es- 
timated that there were at least two thousand of them throughout 
Ireland— one or more generally in every parish. These houses were 
generally erected at cross-roads, always well supplied with pro- 
visions and meat boiled in large cauldrons ; and supplies of various 
kinds were always kept ready cooked for all comers. 

At the Reformation, according to Ware's works, and Archdall's 
Monasticon, there were in Ireland five hundred and sixty-three monas- 
teries of the various orders ; the respective numbers of which are 
separately given by Archdall and Ware. 

The abbots of the following monasteries were mitred abbots, who, 
together with the priors here mentioned (making in all twenty-four) 
sat amongst the lords, barons, and bisljops, as spiritual peers in the 
Irish Parliament, according to Ware and others : The abbot of 
the Cistercian monastery of MeUifont, in the county Louth, the first 
of that order founded in Ireland, in the twelfth century. The abbot 
of the Cistercians of Bective, in Meath. The abbot of the Cistercians 
of Baltinglass, in Wicklow. The abbot of the Cistercians of Dun- 
brody, in Wexford. The abbot of the Cistercians of Tintern, in 
Wexford. The abbot of the Cistercians of Jerpoint, in Kilkenny. 
The abbot of the Cistercians of Douske, in Kilkenny. The abbot of 
the Cistercians of Tracton, in Cork. The abbot of the Cistercians of 
Monaster-Nenay, in Limerick. The abbot of the Cistercians of Ab- 
ington or Wotheney, in Limerick. The abbot of the Cistercians of 
Holy-Cross, in Tipperary. The abbot of the Cistercians of Monaster- 
Evin, in Kildare. The abbot of the Cistercians of Mary's-Abbey, in

Beytaffh.—See the "Beatty" pedigree. ' 


the city of Dublin. The abbot of the Auguatinians of St. Thomas 
the Martyr, in Dublin. The prior of the Knights of St. John of 
Jerusalem, at Kilmainham, in Dublin. The prior of the Augustinians 
of the Holy Trinity or Christ Church, Dublin. The prior of the 
Augustinians of All Saints, in Dublin — now Trinity College. The 
prior of the Augustinians of SS. Peter and Paul, of Newtown, near 
Trim, in Meath. The prior of the Augustinan Monastery of the 
Virgin Mary, at Louth. The prior of the Benedictines of Down- 
patrick, in Down. The prior of the Augustinians of Great Connall, 
in KUdare. The prior of the Augustinians of Kells, in Kilkenny. 
The prior of the Augustinians of Athassel, in Tipperary. The prior 
of the Augustinians of Rattoo, in Kerry. 


The Picts were called by the Irish writers, Cniithnidh, which O'Brien 
considers to be the same as Britneigh or " Britons"; others derive the 
name from Cmit, "a harp" : hence Cruitneach the Irish for " Piot", 
also sigaifles " a harper", as they are said to have been celebrated 
harpers. The ancient Britons are mentioned by Ca;sar, and other 
Eoman writers, as having painted their bodies a blue colour, with 
the juice of a plant called woad : hence the painted Britons were by 
the Romans called Pkti. The Picts or Cruithneans, according to the 
" Psalter of Cashel", and other ancient annals, came from Thrace, in 
the reign of the Milesian monarch Heremon, and landed at Inver 
Slainge, now the Bay of Wexford, under two chief commanders 
named Gud and Cathluan ; but not being permitted to settle in 
Ireland, they sailed to Albain, or that part of North Britain now 
called "Scotland", their chiefs having been supplied by Heremon with 
wives from among the widows of the Tuath De Danaus slain by the 
Milesians in their conquest of Ireland. The Cruithneans became 
possessed of North Britain, and founded there the kingdom 
of the Picts, which continued for many centuries, until they were 
conquered, in the ninth century, by Kinneth Mac Alpin, king of the 
Dalriadic Scots or Irish colony iu North Britain; and from that time 
the Scottish kings, of Milesian race, ruled over Scotland. According 
to the Irish writers the Picts, in their first progress to Ireland from 
Thrace, settled a colony in Gaul, and the tribes called Pktoiies and 
Pktavi, in that country, were descended from them ; and they 
gave name to Pictnvia or the city of " Poictiers", and the province 
of " Poitou" ; and from these Picts were descended the Vendeans of 
France. The venerable Bede states that the Picts came to Ireland 
from Scythia, or borders of Europe and Asia, and afterwards passed 
into North Britain. It appear.! that the Picts were Celto-Scythians 
(or a mixture of Celts and other branches of the Scythian family) ; 
and spoke a dialect of the Celtic language. 

The Caledonians, or first inhabitants of Scotland, are considered- 
to have been the same as the Picts, and mixed with Cimbrians (or 


Britons) and some of the Milesian Scots from Ireland. The country 
■was called by the Irish Alha or Albaiii, and by the Romans Cale- 
donia. There are various opinions as to the origin of the name 
"Caledonia": seme say it was derived from "Cathluan", the first 
commander of the Picts ; others consider that the inhabitants were 
called Coilldaoine, from "C'oill," the Irish for mood, and "daoine," 
people, as they lived chiefly in the woods — most of the country, in 
those early ages, being covered with the great Caledonian forest ; 
and from "Coilldaoine" the Eomans made the Latin name Caledonia, 
Others consider the name " Coilldaoine" to be derived from coill, 
" a wood", and duna, "fortresses", as the chief habitations and 
strongholds of the people were in the forests. 

The Belrjians were called in the Gaulish or Celtic language Bolg, 
and Bolgach, a quo Firbolgs and Fiivohjians ; and by the Eoman 
writers Bolcjce, Belgw, Belgli. O'Brien, in his Dictionary, considers 
the name to be derived from the Celtic bolg, "a quiver for arrows", 
as they were great archers. The word Bolgach also signifies "cor- 
pulent" : hence others are of opinion that they might have derived 
their designation from being stout men of large size ; they were 
celebrated for their bravery, fought with great valour against the 
Komans, and were called by Caesar Fortissimi Galhrum, or "the 
most valiant of the Gauls". The Belgians possessed an extensive 
territory, called by the Eomans Gallia Belgica ; which comprised 
the northern parts of Gaul or Prance, and the country now called 
" Belgium" ; they were divided into many nations or tribes, as the 
Parisii, Rheni, BeUovaci, Atrebates, Kervii, Morini, Menapii, etc. 
The Belgians, according to Appian, were a mixed race of Cimme- 
rians and Germans ; others consider they were a mixture of Gauls 
and Germans, and partly of the same origin as the Cimbrians, of 
whom an account has already been given. The Belgians of Gaul, 
being intermixed with the adjoining Germans, partly adopted their 
language, and hence some have considered they were a Gothic or 
Teutonic race ; but they were chiefly Celts or Gaels, and spoke a 
dialect of the Celtic language, but mixed with the German or Teu- 
tonic tongue. The Belgians of Gaul, many centuries before the 
Christian era, sent colonies to Britain ; and when Ciesar invaded 
Britain they were a powerful people, and possessed the southern 
parts of England, from Suffolk to Devonshire. The following were 
the Chief Belgic tribes in Britain : — the Cantii, in Kent ; the Tri- 
nobantes, in Essex and Middlesex ; the Begini and Atrebates, in 
Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire, and Somerset; 
the Durotriges, in Dorsetshire ; and the Damnonii, in Devonshire 
and Cornwall. The capital city of the British Belgians was Venta 
Belgarum, now " Winchester." Colonies of Belgians from Gaul also 
came to Ireland in the early ages. 

Thb O'Connors Sligo had ejctensive possessions in the county Rliiro ; 
their influence and authority extended, according to the "Pour 


Masters," from Magh Oeidne to Ceis Corran, and from the river Moy 
to the boundary of Brefney. " Moy Ceidne " was the ancient name 
of the plain extending near the Atlantic, from Bally shannon, in 
Donegal, to Bundrowes, in Leitrim, and, according to Charles 
O'Connor, contained part of Carbury, in Sligo ; and "Ceia [Keash] 
Corran" is a mountain near Lough Arrow, in Sligo, towards the Cur- 
lew mountains, on the borders of Roscommon. The O'Connors for a 
long period held the castle of Sligo, but, generally, in subjection to the 
O'Donnells, princes of Tirconnell, to whom that castle and the terri- 
tory of Carbury, in Sligo, originally belonged. The following docu - 
ment, which has been translated from an intercepted Irish MS. on 
vellum, lately in the tower of London, gives a very curious and 
interesting account of the condition on which the O'Connor Sligo held 
the castle of that town under O'Donnell ; and it illustrates the mode 
of military tenure under the ancient Irish chiefs. This document is 
dated in the year 1539, and runs as follows : — 

" These are the conditions and the agreement on which O'Donnell 
gives the bardach, that is, the Wardenship of Sligo, to Teige, son of 
Cathal Oge O'Connor, and on which he accepted it ; viz., that Teige 
should be a trusty and faithful officer to O'Donnell on all occasions, 
against both the English and Irish of the country, and of distant 
parts, and to be counselled by him in every cause, great and small, 
both at home and abroad in church and country (or lay and ecclesi- 
astical), and particularly every time that O'Donnell demands Sligo 
from the sou of Cathal Oge, he is obliged to deliver it to him ; that 
every time O'Donnell proceeds into North Couuaught, the son of 
Cathal Oge is bound to deliver to him the keys of Sligo, and to give 
him up the town itself (or castle), for the purpose of transacting his 
affairs in North Connaught, every time he demands it ; that should 
O'Donnell be under apprehension that the English or Saxons might 
take Sligo, he shall receive it from the son of Cathal Oge, to demolish 
it (the castle), lest it should be taken possession of by the English, 
or by any others in opposition to O'Donnell, or the son of Cathal 
Oge ; that Teige is bound to go along with the officers and marshals 
of O'Donnell, to every part of North Connaught, to enforce the lord- 
ship of O'Doimell; that every time O'Donnell sends Buannaighe (i. e. 
retained soldiers) into North Connaught, Teige is bound to support 
them, and not that alone, but to enforce their biUetuig (or quartering), 
for the soldiers in every other part of North Connaught, and that 
Teige shaQ have no other soldiers than those sent to him by O'Donnell 
and such as he will permit him to retain ; that Teige is bound to 
send O'Donnell every provincial king who may come to Sligo, and 
also every chief of a town throughout Sligo to be sent to O'Donnell, 
and do nothing else but that to which O'Donnell himself shall consent; 
that Teige shall make neither peace nor war with any person far or 
near, in church or country, but with O'Donnell's permission, and to 
be at war with every person whom O'Donnell desires him to be at 
war with ; that O'Donnell shall have the small Tower of Sligo, to 
give it to whomsoever he himself may please of his own people, for 
the purpose of transacting in it all his private affairs in North 


Teige gave the Almiglity God, in His Divinity and Humanity, as 
an oath and security for the fulfiknent of every thing in this engage- 
ment, and pledged himself that God might visit his body with all 
evils in this world, and to have no mercy on his soul at the point of 
death, if he did not fulfil this matter to O'DonneU, and to his heirs 
after him. 

The security for this covenant on the part of the church is the 
archbishop of Tuam, who is not to allow the benefit of mass, of com- 
munion, of confession, of baptism, of burial in any consecrated grave- 
yard, or the protection (sanctuary) of church or monastery to be given 
to Teige, or any person who would join him should he violate any 
part of this engagement ; and the archbishop is bound, and also every 
ecclesiastic under his jurisdiction, to extinguish the candles of the 
cross (that is, to pronounce excommunication) against Teige and 
every one who joins him, as often as O'Donnell requires them to 
do so. 

The sureties in these conditions on behalf of the professional men 
of Ireland, are Connor-Eoe Mac Ward, O'Clery, and Fergal, the son of 
Donall Roe Mac Ward ; and they themselves, and the professional 
men of Ireland, are bound to satirize Teige, as O'Dohnell may re- 
quire it. 

The witnesses to this compact are the guardian (i.e the abbot) of 
Donegal: viz., Eoderick MacCormao and the entire of his confra- 
ternity, namely, Torlogh O'Connor, John O'Donnell, Bryan Magrath, 
and William O'Dwyer ; also, the archbishop of Tuam (Christopher 
Bodekine), the bishop of Raphoe (Edmond O'Gallagher), the abbot 
of Derry (Cuchonacht O'Firgil or O'Freel), and the dean of Derry. 

The year of our Lord when this indenture was written, in the 
Monastery of Donegal, was 1539, on the 23rd day of the month of 
June, on the Vigil of St. John the Baptist." 

The following are the signatures of the ecclesiastics who witnessed 
this document, as written in Latin: " Nos Edmundus, Episcopua 
Rapotensis interfui tempore premissorum ; Ego Abbas Derensis, 
testis sum omnium premissorum ; Ego Frater Rogerus MacCormao, 
Guardianus de Donegal, cum meo conventu fuimus testes premis- 
sorum omnium ; Ego Shane O'Donnell sum testium premissorum 
unus ; Ego Frater Terrentius O'Connor, testis interfui premiss. ; 
Ego Decanus Derensis interfui tempore premis." 

The professional men signed as follows, in Irish : " I, Connor Roe, 
am in these sureties ; I, O'Clery, am in these sureties ; 1, Fergal 
Mac Ward, am in these sureties." 

In Cox's Hibernia Anglicana it is stated that — " In the year 1585, 
in the government of the lord deputy Sir John Perrott, O'Connor 
Sligo, who had formerly taken a Patent for the county of Sligo, at 
the yearly rent of one hundred pounds sterling, did covenant that in 
lieu of this cess he would pay per annum a fine horse, and one hun- 
dred large fat beeves for three years, and afterwards one hundred 
and thirty beeves annually at Michaelmas, at the castle of Athlone ; 
and also that he would at all Hostings bring twenty horse and sixty 
foot, and maintain them forty days, and would pay in money twenty- 


five pounds per annum, and that in casea of necessity he should assist 
the queen with all his forces, and that he should make legal estates 
to the freeholders — they paying their proportion of the aforesaid 
contribution ; and the queen granted O'Connor all forfeitures for 
felony or by outlawry, or recognizance, and all waifs, strays, and 
penalties for bloodshed. " Thus it appears that, at that period, in the 
reign of Queen EUzabeth, the O'Connor Sligo had the chief authority 
in Sligo ; possessed under the crown the lauds of Sligo ; and was 
equal in power to an earl over that county. 


The Scandinavians worshipped goddesses called Nomas or Nornies, 
and the Fates or fatal sisters j and the doctrine of " witchcraft" 
extensively prevailed amongst them — hence Milton alludes to 
to this subject in his Paradise Lost, when describing Sin and her 
attendant demons : 

" Nor uglier follow the night-hag when called. 
In secret riding through the air she comes, 
Lured by the smell of infant blood to dance 
With Lapland witches, while the laboaring moon 
Eclipses at their charms." 

In the Anthologia Hibernica for June, 1794, is given a very 
curious account of " Witchcraft", in Denmark, in the Pagan times, 
taken from the Icelandic Saga. The term applied to witches by 
Danish writers was Stryga, and it appears that cats were particu- 
larly connected with witchcraft amongst the northern nations : that 
sagacious animal being considered capable of seeing into futurity, 
and hence the skins of cats were worn by witches, and cats and 
witches were always represented as companions. Witches were also 
considered frequently to change themselves into hares, and thus ran 
with great rapidity on their mischievous errands ; and there pre- 
vailed a belief amongst the common people in Ireland, that they 
were invulnerable by leaden buUets, and could be shot only by a 
sixpence or other piece of silver, or by a silver ball. The wizards or 
male conjurors were also held in high esteem, particularly in 

The doctrines of vntchcraft, sorcery and necromancy, were'probably 
•derived from Druidism ; the witches being nearly the same as the 
Druidesses of more ancient days, and hence Bean-draoi, or a " drui- 
dical woman", was also applied to a witch. The other terms appUed 
by the Irish were Piseog (commonly pronounced "Pistreoge") 
signifying witchcraft ; and Easarluigheacht, which also meant witch- 
craft or witchery. Hence Bean-Easarluiglie, or Cailleach Easar- 
luighe, signified " a woman or hag of sorcery" ; magic, sorcery, and 
necromancy were also termed DeamhTwireacht, which means " demon- 
ism." In the Erse or Scottish Gaelic, witchcraft was termed Buid- 
seacM, Buidseachas, and also Druideacht— the latter word signifying 
"Druidism": a witch was also termed Bean-Buidseach, and a 



wizard, Draoidh {that is a " Druid"), and aometimes Fiosaiche, 
which meant a "fortune-teller." 

The doctrines of witchcraft, wizards, warlocka, and weird sisters, 
were very prevalent in former times in Scotland, of which copious 
and very curious accounts are given in Sir Walter Scott's "Letters 
on Witchcraft and Demonology" ; and still more admirable and 
vivid descriptions of witches and their incantations are given in 
Shakspeare's " Macbeth." 

In Ireland, particularly in Ulster, the belief in witchcraft 'exten- 
sively prevailed in former times, and, as stated in the Annals of the 
Four Masters, an Act against witchcraft was passed in the Irish 
Parliament held at Dublin, a.d. 1585, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. 
The Evil-Eye, called by the Irish Beim-sul (signifying " a stroke of 
the eye"), a belief connected with witchcraft, was in former times 
very prevalent in Ireland, as well as in Scotland and England ; and 
it was believed that certain wizards, witches, and other evil-minded 
persons had the power of injuring, or even causing the death of 
cattle, horses, and even human beings, especially children, by their 
malignant looks. This belief also extensively prevails amongst the 
Turks and Arabs and in various countries of Europe ; in Italy it is 
called 3ial Occhio. It was also a superstition amongst the Greeks 
and Romans : by the Greeks it was termed Baskania, and by the 
Komans Fascmatio ; and thus Virgil alludes to it in a passai^e 
where the shepherd laments that his tender lambs were bewitched : 

"Nescio quis teneros occulus mihi fasdnat agnos," 

The doctrines of witchcraft were very prevalent among the Rom- 
ans ; and a famous witch, named Canidia, is celebrated by H orace. 
The term Saga, signifying " a wise woman, or sorceress", was applied 
to a witch in the Latin language ; and in the English the word 
" vpitch" is derived from the Saxon Wice, which also signifies "wise." 

Fairyism has been much connected with the Danes in Ireland, in 
the traditions of the people ; who consider the Danes to have erected 
the circular earthen ramparts or raths, called forts, and that the 
fairies were left there by the Danes to guard their treasures until 
their return to Ireland, which is expected to take place at some 
future time. The opinion that the Danes erected aU the raths is 
erroneous ; for, though they may have built many of them, yet most 
of these ramparts were constructed by the ancient Irish, centuries 
before the Danes came to Ireland. In the traditions of the people, 
the Tuath De Danans and Fairyism were connected ; and it is 
probable that, from the simOarity of the names, the Danes and 
Danans may have been confounded with each other, and some 
of the raths may have been constructed by the Danans in the early 
ages. The terms Sighe, Sigheog, and Siabhra, were applied by the 
Irish to Fairies : hence came the names Siabhrog, "a fairy habit- 
ation" ; Sluagh-Sighe, " the Fairy host " ; and Bmn-Sighe, " a Fairy 
woman." The Fairies were also called by the Irish Deamhain-Aedhir, 
signifying "Demons of the Air" ; and frequently Daoine-Uaithe, 
meaning " the Good People" — being so denominated for fear of giving 
them offence, and dreading their power.
